    Few notes from Mentler pages

    • It seems that avoiding planes that are parallel to the edges of the page suggest more movement
    • Technique is a tool not an objective
    • Never change the course of a line until you have to.
    • Never change the plane of a form until you have to.
    • Never change the tone/value of a color or from one color to another until you have to.
    • Every change must count and count strong.
    • A line/value should have have a past, present and future. There should be a unity of line and mass and the rythm and vitality of life.
    • To have ideas one must have imagination...
    • To express ideas one must have science.
    • Find the of the drawing then draw it.
    • The real stuff of drawing or painting is the design of the darks and lights. Value is valuable.
    • There is only room in your mind for one idea of something. Grasp it and draw it.
    • Don't try to draw a ribcage or a pelvis. Draw the shape, the form, the planes and the values.
    • Don't break up the big darks and lights... Breaking them up destroys form.
    • You learn more doing the same thing different than doing different things the same.
    • Never fire your shot. Power is the real strength. Don't give all, have reserve.
    • Do the simple things and do them well. Do the obvious first.
    • Refuse to see details.
    • If the major form units are in the right relationship the drawing is almost done.
    • If the major masses are in the right place, it takes very little to create form.
    • Keep the lights together and the darks together.
    • If the foreground is well done the distance will take care of itself.
    • Shadow first then light.
    • Hatch values from large to small.
    • If you have not studied the shoulder gridle and the pelvic gridle you will have trouble with life drawing.
    • In general value relates to angle... There are of course exceptions.
