the artists touch

dsc00653 300x216 the artists touch

 Part of what I find essential to drawing is the touch. Taking the powerful concepts of line and form to another level that people can feel. I’ve seen artists spend years on technique but lack the essential “touch”. This is a key ingredient to the communication between artist and viewer. Not the only component mind you, but the one that you can’t learn in school. If an up and coming artist doesn’t find this trait within themselves early on, all the training and long hours will amount to a mediocre body of work.  

 Drawing and the sketch use simpler tools than painting and sculpture, master this craft first.
