Images from the Author of First Garden
(Click on Images to Enlarge)

I use a lot of picture reference for my drawings. For John Adams I found portraits of him in biographies in the public library.

I began with one posture and developed the pose, adding the vegetables in John’s hand which started to tell the story I wished to tell in First Garden.

I didn’t feel that pose in the first drawing was dynamic enough so I found a picture of a statue of Adams which had the energy I wanted to portray.

I added a head based on the earlier book reference and after multiple sketches I felt satisfied with the tone of the drawing.

The final painting of President Adams placed with other elements, similarly created, completes the composition.
