Knowledge & words & lines :: Le savoir & les mots & les lignes

All knowledge cannot be expressed in words, yet our education is based almost exclusively on its written or spoken forms. But the artist, dancer, and mystic have learned to develop the nonverbal portion of intelligence.
― Robert Ornstein, american psychologist

I will mention something that has become quite evident for me over time, but when you are drawing, you should always start drawing with the  foreground objects first and the background objects last… especially when you are drawing with indelible ink. That way you do not get caught crossed over lines that should not have been! This is a farm on Route 201 in St. Clet, Québec, Canada.

Mon expérience en dessin m’amène à partager ce que j’ai appris au fil du temps… quand vous dessinez, surtout avec une plume indélibile, toujours commencer par les objets qui se trouvent en-avant et finir avec ceux qui sont dans le fond… de cette façon vous allez éviter de faire des lignes qui ne doivent pas apparaître!
