    I always enjoy these very much. You are dedicated to your sketches, and it shows in the simplicity and in the emotion.

    I also love the valley image from the last post. You excel in both the big and the small image, Adam.

    Thank you Casey – nice complements.

    re-simplicity & emotion in drawing & sketching. Yes, it’s not a question of ‘finish’ but of saying with simplicity the essential truth of the subject matter. In someways, I wish I could carry this dis-ingenious search for simplicity into painting, or at least watercolour, which is closer to drawing.

    Saying more with less.

    “I have always considered drawing not as an exercise of particular dexterity… but as a means deliberately simplified so as to give simplicity and spontaneity to the expression, which should speak without clumsiness, directly to the mind of the spectator.” – Matisse
