Drawing As Playtime
I remember when I was a kid and got a brand new box of crayons the first thing I would do would be to open the box and stare at all the colors that I had to choose from. I wasn't thinking of all the big things I could create, I had no masterpiece in mind. It was more about how I could play with all these colors. I wanted to make something with it but it was more about experiencing the act of creation, of watching an image form from under my hands as I use these wonderful, colorful materials.
The result may not be a masterpiece but it certainly was fun and helped me to consider new approaches in how I draw something or how I use the material.
