Training Your Mind
Look with total focus at each scene and object you wish to draw or paint. Think only of your subject. Leave behind the thoughts about tonight’s dinner and yesterday’s conversation with a friend. Choosing a subject that appeals to you will help. Before you start drawing, spend some time just thinking about your subject. The following questions and suggestions can get you started:
- Look over every inch of it to get to know and understand its subtleties intimately before you begin the drawing.
- Forget that you’re looking at a certain object, a rock or a vase. Just experience its color and texture. See the way light falls on it or passes through it. See the shape and color of the shadow it casts.
- Does your object have a shiny or dull surface? How do you know?
- Is your object opaque, translucent or transparent?
- If it’s transparent, what happens to the images behind it?
Forget about the drawing task for a while. Give yourself the time to take in information before rushing to produce an image.
