[Auckland'dan Murray Dewhurst tarafından] Her şey önce sayfaya ışık tutmamı sağlayan The Grey Book sayesinde. İyi çalıştığında, zaman zaman gizlice girmeye çalışan korkunç 'önce kalem' eğilimini kısa kesmeye yardımcı oluyor. İlk beyaz ne kadar gevşek olursa o kadar [...]
Going to the park, start to drawing with my cousin and see the Reality through new eyes, what a beautiful time to spend with her! I suggest you encourage everyone to draw with you: this is a practice that will change your perspective in many ways!
