I'm pretty good at drawing anything I see. Given enough time, I can do a photorealistic rendering. But I cannot draw anything from the mind.
So what is the best method and strategy to learn to draw from the imagination?
With "method" I mean:
- Which construction principle to use? (These are the Bridgman / Hale / Hogarth / Loomis / Famous Artists etc. schools.)
- Not use a construcion principle at all but rather just keep drawing from reality (or photos) and find my own abstractions? (This is the Kimon Nicolaïdes school of "The Natural Way to Draw" and gesture drawing (Glen Vilppu).)
- Other methods?
With "strategy" I mean:
- Where to begin?
- How to proceed?
- What to do each day?
