Jr. High art is learning about observation and recording detail for drawing what they see. Today we learned that we cannot list all of the things we don’t know about because we don’t know all the areas where we are lacking knowledge. Often when observing a new item, we cannot know all of the details that we are not observing. This is the principle that mystifies the untrained artist. Other people seem to be able to draw so much better than they. It is usually not a mechanics issue. Instead, the untrained artist is most often also untrained at observation.
