“When you are drawing, you are always one or two marks ahead. You’re always thinking, ‘After what I’m doing here I’ll go there, and there.’ It’s like chess or something. In drawing I’ve always thought economy of means was a great quality – not always in painting, but always in drawing.”
― Martin Gayford, A Bigger Message: Conversations with David Hockney
Drawing is like a puzzle. A mental challenge of how a group of mistakes can end up making marks that mean something completely on their own.
Through my own experience, I try to draw the emotion, and capture the feelings produced by my subject and my own experience in that particular moment.
