Everyday, if I do nothing else, I draw. Besides the ink wash drawings (this one is another 8x10 Yupo of a view on Classon Avenue in Brooklyn), right now I'm also doing a series of quick drawings in pencil (this one from one of my walks). Drawing is crucial to good painting, and even more crucial to discovering new ideas. It's hard to think up new ideas, by which I don't mean content so much as methods. It's less difficult to draw up new ideas.
