As an artist, sketching is very important to me. I like to consider all my options before committing to a final piece. Plus, I enjoy creating my sketches and losing myself in the process. As a wise professor once said, the more you draw something, the more familiar it becomes, and the better your final rendering will be. Andrew Wyeth of Chadds Ford, PA can attest to this as well, as his father used to make him practice drawing the same glass containers over and over until the movement of creating the piece was ingrained in his mind, eye, and muscle memory. The same is true of SO many aspects of our lives!
