every work begins with a detailed drawing. this stage can take any time from a day to weeks to develop the idea. i never have a clear idea of what i am going to draw, and even if i do have an idea, the end result tends to be nowhere near it. usually, i leave a drawing for some time until i feel in the right mood to work on that particular painting, i never start painting any drawing that had just been done, sometimes it could be years before i get on with it. i take my inspiration from observing everyday life, people and events and interpret what i see in my own peculiar way. here are some provisional drawings below.
