I begin every oil painting in a naturalistic manner, painstakingly depicting as much detail as the hand and eye permit. After considerable care and control is given to grasp a clear image, chance is then introduced into the work by mechanically and unsentimentally passing over the painting with a massive brush, what could be likened to the technique of sfumato. The consequence is that of revealing the fragility of things while erasing everything but what is important.
