«…“When I was 15 years old I knew how to draw like Rafael, but I needed a whole life to learn how to draw like a child”. This sentence, attributed to Picasso, has not always been well interpreted and has everything to do with an individual’s attitude towards drawing.
Who doesn’t recall the strong feelings of frustration during the many and pointless attempts to draw realistically? Not all of us have had the chance to be close to someone attentive and that would invite us to insist, not in a precise copy of reality, but in the representation of what we know and feel. Just like Picasso, many of us were not that lucky, but we chase a beautiful goal ».
