Drawing in itself is a BRAVE act …
Basically, you are putting a little bit of your soul and how you see the world on paper
You are making a commitment each time you do this that is why I think it is so scary. I always feel rather naked when I draw, like I am exposing my raw underbelly.
But the KEY is to DO IT ANYWAY
You know that ubiquitous lyric … “Dance like no one is watching”?
Well, draw like no one will ever see … draw with ABANDON
Egon Schiele one of my favorite artists drew like this. His work is raw, emotional, edgy, controversial, and honest. I don’t think you see any pretense when you look at his work. It may not be “pretty” but it is real. He didn’t make any excuses – that is evident on the page.
