How I See

I was just sketching something (for the first time in ages) and I realized that I change the way I look at something when I draw. My eyes sort of unfocus so that I can see the shadows, and then they refocus on particular parts of the object I'm drawing so I can see the finer details. I was taught that learning to draw was learning to really see something, and that whole lesson just came back to me two-fold. Amazing!
