Artist quotes about drawing for display or discussion

  1. 1. It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character ~ Camille Pissarro
  2. 2. Drawing is the honesty of art. To draw does not mean simply to reproduce contours: drawing does not consist merely of line. Drawing is also expression, the inner form, the plane and modelling ~ Ingres
  3. 3. What do drawings mean to me? I really don't know. The activity absorbs me. I forget everything else in a way that I don't think happens with any other activity... ~ John Berger
  4. 4. Drawing is deception ~ M C Escher
  5. 5. Drawing is putting a line (a)round an idea. ~ Matisse
  6. 6. The very act of drawing an object, however badly, swiftly takes the drawer from a woolly sense of what the object looks like to a precise awareness of its component parts and particularities ~ Alain de Botton
  7. 7. The essence of drawing is the line exploring space ~ Andy Goldsworthy
  8. 8. Drawing is . . . not an exercise of particular dexterity, but above all a means of expressing intimate feelings and moods ~ Matisse
  9. 9. There are no rules, only tools ~ Glenn Vilppu (animator)
  10. 10. My attitude towards drawing is not necessarily about drawing. It's about making the best kind of image I can make, it's about talking as clearly as I can ~ Jim Dine
