I am picking out my 20 pieces that will go in my portfolio for grad school. The real challenge here is that I need to submit two drawings that show my intentions.....I don't draw.
I mean, I draw, but I don't draw, you know. Generally speaking, I make all of the marks on my paintings with line, so technically it's drawing. However, I have never been one to 'sketch' things out before I start, or visually plan the painting by starting a drawing. I kinda just go for it.
My plans usually involve writing, all writing, no sketches. I can visually translate my plan though, so I don't really need the drawing. It's already in my head, you see. The words are just a guide, they serve the same function as a drawing would.
