I Said Draw

When It Feels Like Work

When your drawing feels like doing work, you may not be doing it right.  The best definition I have ever seen of drawing is the record of time spent looking.  One classic way of beginning to look is to create a masterpiece drawn upside down.  I like to have students take this one step further and take that master work and change it up to make it your own.  This livens up the looking so that it no longer feels like work.
