“Drawing can be a potent problem-solving aid for both children and adults. A drawing can let you see how you feel.Putting that another way, the right brain, by means of a drawing, can show left brain what the trouble is.The left brain, in turn, can use its own powerful skills – language and logical thought – to solve the problem.”

 – Dr.Betty Edwards,”Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”

“The process of drawing is before all else, the process of putting the visual intelligence into action, the very mechanics of taking visual thought. Unlike painting and sculpture it is the process by which the artist makes clear to himself, and not to the spectator, what he is doing.It is a soliloquy before it becomes communication.”

– Michael Ayerton, “Golden Sections”

“Color can overwhelm… One must understand that when it comes to color less is often more – a lesson taught us by the masters but ignored by many artists.”

“In a way, art is like athletics: if you don’t practise, the visual sense quickly gets flabby and out of shape.The purpose of drawing is not to put lines down on paper any more than the purpose of jogging is to get somewhere. You must exercise your vision without caring overly much about the products of your practise.”
