An artist, an I'm thinking of figurative artists now, selects an area of the reality and reproduces that, through his own perceptions, emotions and skill.
(good) Photography is certainly not something many people are capable of doing. However, if I compare a photo of a daisy and a detailed and accurate drawing of the same flower, the drawing might move me more. It probably transmits, along with the beauty of the flower and the refinement of the drawing, the effort put into it, by the artist.
Being busy with a multiple stencil project, I haven't been drawing for a week. I miss it!
The drawings here are by an artist called Karandashom.
