Excerpt from Talks About Art

Look at that figure, and draw it as if it were a plant. Remember that background and clothing have reference to the figure. You might change the whole drawing of the face, yes, draw in the face of another boy, without materially changing the character of the figure.

You talk about practice of the hand. It has less to do with drawing than you think. You draw with your brain, with your eyes. You could draw with your toes, like the man in Antwerp.

Old Poussin said, My hand trembles with old age; but I think it will yet follow the dictates of my brains!
