Speaking about drawing to Damian Skinner, Don Binney commented, ‘The second half of my life became absent of a lot of passion really—from the outside, that is. My capacity and inclination to draw survived the worst of this. An investment authority there remained intact: and the passion was still within. Drawing has linked up with my personal faith, and with recovered commitment.’
