Bones. Drawing is the bones of an art work. Even Pollack's work. I have had the great good fortune of seeing the sketchbooks and drawings of several masters and to a one, they can draw. Want to see me drool? Besides at Main Street Bakery, I mean. Show me an exquisite drawing. Good drawing in a piece of art is like Grace Kelley's cheekbones. Everything else is show, elaboration, improvisation and movement. And good art, like Grace Kelly, has good bones with which to move us along. Fluid well tuned lines. A dynamic articulation. Arrestingly beautiful forms...next time you look at a lot of art, see if you can pick out the Grace Kellys in the room.
