Drawing of Kangaroo No. 55 from the fourth series on the subject, Portrait of Kangaroo. It captures the individual characteristics of these wonderful animals. In this particular drawing, I have depicted a 5-year-old male red kangaroo.

My drawing style is simple but expressive. At a distance, my style gives the impression that it’s highly detailed drawing, yet that is not the case at all. If anything, it’s a fast nervous gesture of energetic lines, washed, patterns, doodles and whatever else happens. Yet, it happens under control.
I like to work on a large scale as this offers the capacity of full-arm movement. I love line in motion. Each line/mark always has a begging point and an endpoint. Some end with a solid hard black aggressive brick wall while others wisp away into infinity like the transient flick of a whisker seen while the animal is eating or curiously sniffing the air. I also love the sterility of large plain white space against the chaos of fast black drawing. I enjoy capturing time in motion.
