Sketches and notes

"I look for the deformity of the figures, but with uncommon foreshortenings or with stilizations, avoiding a great number of lines inside the drawing which are not necessary, it takes a great capacity of sinthesis (…) that mastery of sketching is what i am looking for, to be able to create from that point towards absolute freedom that (i whish) to imprint in the paintings. The gesture in the brush stroke i will keep always. It is difficult to take that away from oneself and besides i don´t want to do it, because the “gesture” is what makes the difference in my paitings from any other configuration.
