Lightheartedly, one of my first comments to my students is that they are all a bunch of liars. Initially students draw what they think they see and not reality. Not to confuse this with opinion, they create things in their minds that do not exist in the model or the pose the model is taking. Assuming is like guessing. Use this book to help you gain a new awareness of reality. If I create a "force full" drawing, it is because I am aware of the model's forces. You must learn to see by stripping yourself of assumption. I tell students constantly that all of the answers are right in f ront of them. Open yourself up to the splendor of the life in front of you. There is no reason to lie.
