Leonardo's drapery studies


Someone was telling me:
"Creative ability is not something we are born with, the desire to create is. The desire to create is nourishment for talent."
It sounds and it feels so true. The road towards our artistic goals (can't find a better word for the fire that burns inside the artist) requires a lot of work. And it all starts as "low" as drawing flies and hands and feet, again, and again, and again. Until something clicks inside, until the hand blends into and becomes the hand of observation, control, passion, all in one, all at once.
Here's an example of Il Maestro's "doodles". I sincerely believe that many artists today could paint and draw like Leonardo Da Vinci but for that, one needs to go through him and then, ahead. If you know what I mean.
