~Henry Ward Beecher
Artists are known for creating vast murals and intricately-painted masterpieces, massive statues and iconic imagery. They go down in history for their most memorable visions--known to many as grand works with exhorbitant price tags kept in high-security safes. Yet great works of art are not formed in one fell swoop. There are rough sketches, color studies, figure drawings, and photos. Some artists doodle, collage, and scribble away the everyday just to get closer and closer to the ultimate vision. With every line and stroke, they refine their character and enrich their visual vocabularies.
