Why are there drawings on the "Paint Your Joy!" blog? Well, underneath every good painting is a good drawing. Even if there is not a literal drawing, good paintings must be structurally sound in order to work well. Drawing improves one's ability to paint and good teachers recommend that painters draw every day. I just read a quote on The Painters Keys from Irwin Greenberg's "Words to Paint By." It read, "Draw everywhere and all the time. An artist is a sketchbook with a person attached."
