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.
