sketchbook; 30 minutes

What is essential in drawing is to be able to capture the essence of an idea without resorting to dogmatic representation of detail. The best representational work operates somewhere between artistic formal expression and literary narrative. By that I mean expression is encoded in line, gesture and composition rather than in accurate rendering, which only leads to narrative device.
