Meeting Notes

Drawing people, especially people that I know well and who are not holding frozen still, is a most interesting challenge.  I'm trying to discern the minimum number of marks that will give sufficient information. 
I stopped after a few pen strokes on the upper left because that was all that seemed necessary.  Nothing kills a drawing like overworking it.  I always remember my first art school drawing teacher's constant exhortation: ' If the nose is giving you trouble, work on something else;  never attack a problem directly;  change the environment and the problem will solve itself.' To which he would add:  'And that is true in all of life.'
