Artist Brian Keating, Dublin and France

I was born in Dublin and studied at the National College of Art and Design, I'm based in the south of France.

Before I start a drawing, be it on site or from notes and photographs, my first step is to study the scene, observing the overall dynamics of the "action" and "Interaction" between the subject, and the environment.

With each drawing, I endeavour to capture a moment in time, hopefully portraying the movement, energy and direction within and surrounding the subject.

I want my lines and colour to project the activity that's abundant in a fraction of a moment, a hesitation of time and a glimpse into the next second.

I've left white space around each drawing. The overall paper size includes this space.

My drawings are in collections worldwide.
