*Comments On Style: *
“I would describe Paul's style as painterly: he draws like a painter. He doesn't overly render his sketch or drawing but rather he uses the side of the pencil to sketch soft broad strokes and rubs the graphite over to create a soft valued overtone where he can then darken or erase to create tonal masses which help underscore the focal point of his piece. His painting style is loose but so confident and lyrical.” - John Nevarez
