Drawing is the fundamental basis of art for Mark.  From his early days at art school, drawing the human form was a central tenet to his learning.  The reason Mark applied and went to the Royal Academy Schools was that in the first term, all students had to work from the model every day.  His passion for pencil and charcoal drawing extended more recently to pastels.  Mark loves the immediacy of applying the colour with different size sponges on quality pastel paper.
