Art is really having its chance. The urge to draw seems to have taken hold of many more thousands today than ever before. It has spread across the nation. While many are interested in art as a pastime or hobby, others would gladly choose it as a means of livelihood if they were convinccd that their ability was sufficient to pro- vide any real hope of success.
There will always be a certain amount of confusion about what is talent or native ability in drawing and what is knowledge of the craft. Too often, knowledge is construed as talent. On the other hand, drawing that lacks constructive knowledge is seldom successful as drawing. The truth is that we do not see the talent until the means of bringing it forth has been developed. That means is a reasonably accurate analysis and understanding of the laws of nature as they ap- ply to man’s vision.
