“ A strong structure needs solid foundations ,A good drawing is the necessary foundation to strong art,and time spent on mastering the basics is invaluable ”
Keeping the above in mind , I draw and draw –everyday , all the time –actually, whenever I have nothing else to do. On the subway, in the waiting room of the dentist’s or the doctor, there am I with my little notebook and a stub of a pencil , doodling away . All my purses now have scraps of paper with little things scribbled on them.
Now writing has become secondary ----instead I draw ---with a pencil, or a pen or a crayon.
When I see faces I am mentally drawing lines, angles, curves and facets . When I look at scenes , I see darks oand lights and think which geometrical shape a particular area fits into .
I draw in my dreams too sometimes and wake in the middle of the night with a perfect drawing in my head –sadly it has disappeared by morning –all I can remember is that it was perfect…
These scribbles maybe my inspiration some day –I start my SUBWAY DIARY and save them in it .
PS –Figures in the diaries , have no facial likeness to any persons . Only gestures are drawn and if anybodies did inadvertently become my muse, they were informed and only if they allowed were the drawings on my blog.
