    Get a quick, nervous action, and even when your lines are wrong, the spirit of vital speed will be caught

    if you are sensitive to such line-character, you will fall into the use of different lines for differing personalities

    scientific. Art is not a science. There are no rules in art, and it is not to be reasoned out into a series of rules.
    Art is the ability to express one’s individual empressions

    I earnestly ask you to avoid any method of tuition which lays down cast-iron rules for figure drawing; any suggestion of fixed proportions, stereotyped shading and where to start will only deaden your life drawings, and reduce your efforts to a mechanical performance

    Here is a simple rule for the pose of a figure when standing on one foot. Draw the centre of the neck directly above the centre of the instep—if the weight is on the toes, directly above the toes; if on the heel, directly above the heel

    Forget much of what you have learned about shading. Light and shade are merely useful in making a pattern or design; such is composition, not life drawing. Shading will not give thickness or movement to a figure; and, in life sketching, all artists usually find they must limit themselves to simple line work

    Look at the subject five times as long as you take to draw it. Practice this with still life, any common stationary object—look at it for thirty seconds then jot down your impressions in six seconds

    Don’t be frightened of drawing a wrong line or making a bad drawing in your effort to get essential action, pose, character, or movement of your subject

    Be sure that every line makes sense, i.e., is necessary and serves its purpose

    On this method you do six minutes’ actual drawing in half an hour, but you will find that the result will be cleaner, more accurate, and more workmanlike in appearance than if you had fallen into the common error of spending more time on the drawing than in the study of the subject.

    Don’t try, in a quick sketch, to draw the figure—draw the pose

    Never draw a crease unless you have decided what type it is, whether crumpled, hanging, or taut; what is its length, breadth and direction

    Shoes are practically always seen from above.
    A line drawn through the center of the sole will, if continued, go through the centre of the heel—see dotted lines, figures G and H.
    The heel and sole of the foot are nearly always in the same plane when the foot is still.

    upon an imaginary line horizontal and level with your eyes.
    A form has thickness as well as width and length; try to make a figure look solid. Shading is not essential.
    The great difference between the male and female figures is “proportion,” not features.
    The head is egg-shaped, and the skull dominates its shape

    Work as often as you can. Work wherever you are.
    Don’t look for a subject, take the nearest.
    Don’t mind wasting paper. You won’t be wasting time.
    Be certain of your line before you put it down.
    A good line is better than a pretty drawing.
    Get the habit of half-closed eyes.
    Above all, you must get speed

    Don’t draw a line carelessly; make up your mind as clearly as you can what you want to do, and do it as quickly and ably as possible. Think before you work. Look at the figure or object to be drawn five times as long as you take to draw it.
