Did you know that you were born into a manner? So was everyone else. Your manner is that which you naturally do, untrained. Even when trained, much of your time is spent compensating for that manner. Of course, I’m writing about seeing, drawing, and painting. And whether you are aware of it or not, the goal of learning how to see is to release you from that manner. December 20, 2017
Most art students first set out to learn how to draw. It’s a good goal, and succeeding at it will lead to many good things. But that’s not the full story. You must first learn to see. And if you want to learn how to see, then you need to perfect the feedback loop. November 22, 2017
Learning how to accurately see is at once a simple process and a complicated endeavor. The process is simple because all you're really doing is aligning your eye to a visual standard. But complexities arise because your eye tends to believe itself far too easily. Therefore, over the centuries artists have devised numerous tools of the trade to help overcome this. November 11, 2017
On November 12, 2007 I released Cast Drawing Using the Sight-Size Approach, the first book to be focused exclusively on Sight-Size cast drawing. On the same day I inaugurated sightsize.com. Since then I have written and published five other books, produced a DVD, and republished three books that were then out-of-print. It is now ten years later.
