Dissertation – The brain

The intellectual brain focuses on the surface details it can identify, ignoring information that explains the form.

Drawing well requires you to reject the symbol proposed by your intellectual brain and ask yourself “what do I actually see?” There are no shortcuts. The information cannot be generalized or memorized. Everything in the visual world is made up of irregular shapes that vary in complexity . Everything that you draw must be taken just as you see it at that moment, from that vantage point.
