Unconstncted ' Free" Form

The typical forms shown above are easy to work with, learn, and understand at once; with practice it will be possible to get away from them and make one's own freehand drawings in accordance with one's own specific purposes and motifs. As with all creative activities, any mannerism in freehand drawing is dubious, since it is only governed by purely formal principles.

It is advisable to commit the above examples of layout and arrangement to memory. It will also be useful to study the works of good masters in galleries and print exhibits for composition and arrangement. It is even good and not at all silly to observe a very good drawing for (almost) hours and to "feel" each stroke in the mind. Use your critical powers to ascertain why a particular stroke was made at a particular place. If you can go back and see the drawing one or two days later you will find that your judgment (the drawing's strong and weak points, its good and bad sides) has improved.

5.9 Usual Arrangement of the Drawing Sheet

As a general rule it has become the custom when drawing solids and spaces to put the ground plan in the lower part of the paper with the associated exterior and interior views above. In an equally logical but rather different manner, the ground plan is placed in the center of the sheet and the various exterior and interior views are arranged around it. One good trick is the explanatory method where a small section of the view is added as an indication of potential construction. This is useful for many technical drawings and trades. The addition of explanatory detail sketches to a drawing, e.g., a ground plan, is a legitimate and consistent informative device.

6.0 Accuracy and Outline

The guiding principle here must be "Quality alone convinces!"

Apart from anything else, this means that the greatest possible accuracy in drawing is always more highly judged than one or more inaccurate drawings or rapid sketches One fashionable artis, or another may achieve recognition for the quick rough sketch, but this is the exception. In reality, "artistic freedom" leaves little room for untidiness.

The primary task is to show the main object and its outlines (as accurately as possible without aids), then the more important details can be shown. Details can also be placed on the same sheet to a larger scale provided enough space is left for them, and can also give a very pleasing effect: the detail gives the object more substance and the need for shuffling several different sketches is eliminated tfSVOf
