I don’t normally do anything on Sundays, but we had a birthday party for my daughter yesterday. And…after standing in the sun to man the grill all day, I was a little bit crispy and tired.
So I switched work days. I haven’t been working much this week as we prepared for her birthday and her party, so I figured it would be appropriate to come work today. I also finally got my copy of The Natural Way to Draw by Kimon Nicolaides and cracked open the introduction.
It’s much more digest-able than The Art Spirit by Robert Henri, so far. And I love the philosophy behind the book. It’s very much geared toward slow, deliberate mastery in the beginning. I have yet to tackle any of the exercises, but I’m excited to see where it goes.
I love the comparison to language that K.N. uses in the very beginning – as that’s a comparison I’ve often made, myself. I think The Natural Way to Draw will heavily influence future lessons in the JoshuaGraphic universe. 😀 Get excited, because I am!
