I always paint directly from life, and I always paint from the general shapes, or masses, to the specific details. This is how I was trained, so that I am drawing and painting at the same time. It forces me to draw with the brush, which in turn, keeps the painting fresh and exciting, and it gives me ultimate freedom. This is the "start" of the portrait. I used large brushes and broad, general shapes to indicate form and light.
