I draw all the time. Drawing kind of keeps you young as a painter. Drawing keeps you dealing with a lot of possibilities. It keeps you fresh. I think every artist has to reinvent drawing. I like Matisse’s drawing and Van Gogh’s drawing, because that’s the kind of painter I am, and Van Gogh’s drawings seem to me […] as rich and colorful as the paintings.
