“Drawing is seeing in your garden.
An ancient artist once said that you never really see anything unless you draw or paint it. The attention required in developing a representation of something requires us to regard it as never before. We alternately jump from the concrete to the abstract as we draw petal and leaf, root and branch. These mental leaps can lead us to a deeper understanding of whatever we are drawing.”
