Drawing has always been a creative skill and good drawing skills permitted artists to take hold of the reality around them. In this modern era, however, the general impression was that with the extensive availability of computers, digital cameras, and image software, drawing would diminish into an insignificant activity.
In truth, although there’s an increase of interest for digital imagery, the skill and talent to draw is still considered a treasured skill compared to digital imagery.
I happened to know someone who has impressed me with her drawing skills. I am very grateful that she has given me her time to answer some personal questions about her and her craft and share it with WhichCraft.
