- Drawing with Jules -

For 7 years prior to his death in 2007 I drew with Jules Olitski during the summers and into the fall at his studio on Bear Island.  He only worked at night so I would arrive with a model by boat at 6 o’clock or so and we would spend the evening drawing.

 

I was trained in a classical figure style—conte' on paper.  Over time, as we worked, influenced by Jules expressive style, I began to experiment with materials and color.  I think I made well over 200 drawings during this time.
