Most beginning artists start by drawing their inspiration from what they see around them. In fact, most art teachers and working artist believe that student should first learn to draw what they see. Many artists love the challenge of depicting the physical world and thrive with this approach. The artistic representation of the external world becomes their lifelong endeavor because it fulfills their passion. This may be true for you, too. Inspiration based on what you see is extremely focused
. Another word to describe this approach is objective
, meaning that is based on what you perceive rather than on something that exists only in your mind. A wide variety of subjects may be inspired by and explored through external focus— anything in fact, you can see with your eyes.
