The mind cannot hold and predict the interaction of all the shapes tones etc., that composes an image so the mind keeps the general forms and uses the artists medium (paper for example) as an extension of the mind’s eye. The artist interacts with the lines on the paper in the same way the mind creates it’s images in the mind’s eye. What we see in a dream in an example of the mind’s eye. This then is the basis upon which traditional master drawing are conceived. This merging of the mind’s eye and the artists medium is the major objective of the developing artist.
