Boarding is Process

From Richardson’s book on Emerson teaching writing;”First We Read, Then We Write.” It says art but say boarding instead.

“Art is the path of the creator to his work. “One cannot repeat it enough; art is not the finished work, art is the getting there. This is why good schools believe in art education, in doing art as well as art history. This is why we give children finger paints; it is the process of expressing that we value, along with-or even more than-the finished work, which as Emerson believes observes, passes at once into the mortuary state once completed and detached from its creator, unless, like a seed, it be good for starting the process all over again. “The painter, the sculptor, the composer the epic rhapsodist, the orator, all partake one desire to express themselves symmetrically and abundantly, not and fragmentarily.”

Robert Fawcett on Drawing

“Bob Fawcett always simplified form in his drawings. He once said, “Economy in drawing is essentially the shorthand which develops in the excitement of the fleeting moment. It is the thing seen subjected to editorial exclusion.” However, he tried to avoid slipping into superficiality: “One’s study can be admired for it’s beautiful line, but if that line is not expressing an understanding of the form itself it remains mildly interesting, but empty of content.””

From Drawing the Nude – The Figure Drawing Techniques of Noted American Illustrator Robert Fawcett” by Howard Munce.

Storyboarding is about economy of drawing. Fawcett would have been a great board artist.
