"First, just look. Draw nothing. Locate the center, also the edges. Find where the light comes from and where it falls. Find where shadows cut across light. Consider the movement of the forms- branches, rocks, clouds, - and the way they intersect. See not only their shapes, but the shapes created by the spaces around them. Don't be timid with your pencil. Move not only your fingers, but your arm. Go right to the edges of the paper. And beyond them"
Lessons to his daughter on how to see (her quote), from the artist Max Maynard.
