     Russell works primarily from life,  exempting mythological subjects which first require him to sketch concept designs from his imagination,  prior to working with live models.  His training began 20 years ago in Italy where he spent a year copying masterworks in order to assimilate the classical language.  He also trained in figure sculpture for several years.
