2 Constant Companions

These two books are my constant companions. New Perspectives In Drawing, and Paul Klee. I refer to them often to ground me in what it means to be fearless and to have skill. Paul Klee is a model to me for color and sensitive line. And of course for purely joyful surface design. New Perspectives reminds me that anything and everything is worthy of notice and capture in drawing. I am always interested in touchstones. What are yours?

Oh wow, I had not seen the first book before. Those photos and the drawings are incredible! Paul Klee's work is so inspiring to me too. I have several postcards I picked up in Paris last year that I look at every day in the studio.

I also LOVE Paul Klee! I have a wonderful book about his visit to Tunesia with gorgeous watercolors and drawings. The first book sounds very interesting too :)
