First One on One with Lisa Silas

In exchange for administration work I am doing for the school I am able to receive some one on one teaching from Lisa for three hours two or three times a week. We are starting where most traditional atelier educations in drawing start – with the Bargue Drawing system. I did my first Bargue drawing plate and it took me three hours. By the end of it I was able to somewhat see a line a millimeter off it’s true path.  My weary head would say “wow, that is really close” and my eye would say “something is not exactly right”. There is a larger lesson in that little fight between the eye and the weary mind. I expect many larger lessons in the grand journey that I am so blessed to be able to be on. PS. I have already made minute corrections to this drawing… maybe it is time to start a new plate!
