line drawing by Charlotte Rossmann
Drawing is a skill, learned with practice but it's a hell of a way to spend your life.
and as others have said...
“We all have 10,000 bad drawings in us. The sooner we get them out the better.”― Walt Stanchfield
― Stephan Pastis
“But it is a pipe."
"No, it's not," I said. It's a drawing of a pipe. Get it? All representations of a thing are inherently abstract. It's very clever.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
“Drawing things makes them seem more real and makes me feel more alive. It also makes me pin down and remember things - landscapes, season, weather, occasions, incidents, people - that would otherwise have melted from my memory.”
― David Gentleman, London, You're Beautiful: An Artist's Year
“Most people don’t have shit… But paper and pencils are cheap, that’s why I draw.”
― Ida Løkås, Det fine som flyter forbi
“Eventually you will get into the habit of enjoying line as a language all of its own.”
― Margaret Stevens, An Introduction To Drawing Flowers
