Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

I do believe in this, although I know that my paintings often (at first) look like the opposite of simplicity. But there is simplicity in there after all – the choice of colors, the rhythm, the movement. But take a look at this – my drawings are simplicity in its pure form. But still – they are almost scarier to make than the paintings. It’s a one-take do it now-process that is impossible to redo. I need to get it down NOW.
