I draw for many reasons. Drawing can be:

  1. A way to focus your attention, look and capture with exactitude something in front of you, like a model or still life. 
  2. A way to explore and get to know something. Think of sketching your cat many times over a summer. 
  3. A way to place emphasis on what interests you. What do you choose to draw? Which portions catch your attention? 
  4. A means of self-expression - exploration, ideas or feelings. 
  5. A means of planning something out
  6. A means of notetaking and maintaining focus

We’ll look at some of these in more detail in upcoming posts.

Meanwhile, perhaps it would be interesting to think about “why do I draw?”
