Artist's Description

I tell it so often:

I joined the Art Teachers Conversion course, never having formally learnt art.
In the first drawing class, the teacher had us sitting at tables (In the Old Sydney Tech.) and draw some fruit or something.
She walked around.
Picked up my drawing.
Held it up and said something like:
“_This looks fine but_ "

and she definitely said the next:
" it’s a tissue of lies!! "

I learnt then that you don’t draw around the non-existant outline of people and things but that you build up the shape with your pencil.

Was I embarrassed?

I certainly still remember it and often talk about it.

This was roughly the same time that I drew this soccer player.
