Thought of The Day Jan 18, 2010

Line drawing is the most important, hence the most difficult to master of all the disciplines in figurative art.

Most painters and sculptors are lousy at drawing. I guess they feel as if drawing is just a step towards the end result (which is true but it doesn't need to be)

It's a shame because if they'd learn how to draw, their work could gain greater insight and even more depth.

When I paint I solve complex foreshortening issues with specks of certain colors, in drawing I can't hide my ignorance behind cheap tricks.
