One of my teachers at Sheridan College framed the practice of drawing as a proof of a person’s ability to understand how objects occupy 3D space. It seems simple enough but is a slight shift in thinking from how I was originally presented the process: to “draw what you see”. It’s a subtle difference but drawing what you see doesn’t pave a better way to understanding and representation of your ideas. Instead it’s a process of copying rather than understanding.
I’ve always loved drawing but have neglected it in past years. Hopefully I’ll remedy that here by posting new studies, more frequently.
