Wow on this subject I have read much but have been mostly listening.
I think that it is much more than just learning to draw. That is
very technical. It is and can be so much more. It's not just what
our hand does, but how our mind thinks, what our eyes see. I am not
a technical artist, that is not what motivates or stimulates me. I
interpret what I see or more likely what the inner self sees. After
all I don't usually draw straight lines, angled lines but often
curved lines. Mostly one continuos line. I also think of the
children who cannot see and how they can still interpret by feel and
form. Are theirs not as valid a vision? Or is theirs a more truer
vision, a truer voyager? Where is the invisible line which sets us
apart or are we merely setting ourselves apart?
