“We do a lot of looking: we look through lenses, telescopes, television tubes…Our looking is perfected every day – but we see less and less.”
from The Zen of Seeing by Frederick Franck, 1973
This week I am drawing and re-reading one of my favourite books, The Zen of Seeing. I was introduced to it many years ago in a drawing class in which we were all at different levels of ability, some never having drawn before. The book, together with our wonderful instructor inspired us all to achieve wonders. I recommend it to you and hope you are able to find a copy. You will want to pick up a pen or pencil and draw, draw, draw.
