In His Own Words: "I use a very old technique in producing my work.  Some call it the Flemish technique, (as opposed to the Italian Renaissance technique).  It's more understood as an indirect method of painting , or painting in layers.

Several layers (up to 7 of more) are used in developing shadows, half shadows, mid tones, highlights, and details and texture of the items I paint.  Starting with a detailed drawing that is done in pencil and retraced with ink.  The canvas is then toned, and an under-painting of brown is laid in.  Then a gray grisaille or gray under-painting is produced to establish all the half tones.  Color layers are next and final layers handle details and texture."
