Not everyone can read my figurative drawings indeed, once a 4 year asked my if I could draw ‘properly’ like her Dad.
I draw like myself, often and with constant searching for what is actually in front of me.
At our local dementia drop – in I had an interesting exchange with someone who has Alzeimher’s, a woman who loves to draw. First I asked her if she could read two drawings I had made while sitting in a hospital waiting area before we both went on to draw quite differently.
She described the image content so clearly ” a woman sitting heavily on a chair, resting one arm, with her back to us’ and ‘a man with unusually wild hair’.
I know these scanned drawings are feint but that is a lot of information in a a few pencil marks!
