Title Basket of Chips, page 078
Description A Basket of Chips "Get the bull's eye every time. It is not enough to hit the target." "Some prefer to draw from the cast when the living model is posing." "It is foolish to chop off good legs because crutches are handy." "What you draw from the cast for is to learn to see light and the beauty of shadow." "Why do you draw the base of the nose like the muzzle of a double barreled shot gun. 2 That nose is a facsimile of Michael Angelo's `David,' a model of beauty." "God didn't intend nostrils to be conspicuous. That's why they were placed tinder the nose." "Do not draw a wire frame for an eye or mouth, as though they were used for mounting artificial flowers for funeral decorations." "Draw the shadows, and the features will be there." "I am afraid I can never learn to draw or paint." "You will have to if you stay in my class." "There has never been one yet that I could not teach to draw or paint, if he would put a reasonable amount of time and thought to it." "When one comes to class, either dead or asleep, I tell him that it is far better to lie down - then all parts relax and are benefitted." "Get light into your work. Life could not exist without it. It is the greatest element in all art and the supply is unlimited." "You would like me to finish it to show you how? If I should eat your food to show you how, what would become of you? Do it your way. It might be better than mine." "Do not draw the dirt on the model. Imagine it is not there. I hate dirt; I have been fighting it all my life. I don't mean soil that plants grow in." "You say you will take the lights out after, with a rubber. It is foolish to mop a clean shirt in the dirt because it can be cleaned after." 78
