what it takes
Sketching on a regular basis requires you to pay close attention to the visual world around you.
With practice, you begin to see things you never noticed before. (Paul Laseau)
Visual note-taking is just that; taking notes and taking time to see.
Some objects require more study, a closer look, a clear understanding and establishing a more concise direction and intention
Da Vinci, studied, re-studied, took apart and put it back together.
It is what it takes.
Attempting a new subject; give it time. That’s how beautiful drawings and designs are made.
Practice continually until you get it and see how far you can go.
