To an artist, looking and seeing should not be the same thing.  Looking is simply noticing an object as you pass by it.

Seeing, or perceiving, is actually studying the object. 

  • It is picking up on every line and shadow.

  • It is observing all the details.

  • Through drawing practice, artsist become better at perceiving.
