There are many reasons to draw....
Drawing to play with mark making
Drawing to show ideas
Drawing to show feelings
Drawing to develop empathy
Drawing to see
Do you know why you like to draw?
I like to draw to help me see what is really out there.
To spend an hour looking at a leaf and drawing and painting what I see is fascinating to me. There is so much to see, so I have to choose and edit what I depict. Colours in the Autumn are so wonderful.

I hope you find some time to draw too...
