|Rothko Session #4|
"I definitely think drawing has beneficial qualities for any creative, and unfortunately it seems to have become a vanishing skill. Drawing is all about thoughtful observation, you have to sit still and absorb everything around you. Painting architecture for example, you have to sit their and soak in all the lines, as well as the culture surrounding the building to discover how it sits in its environment. (...) Le Corbusier devoted half of every day over a 45 year period to writing, painting and drawing, and later this helped him power the design of the Modulor system, a ‘harmonious’ scale of proportions that he devised in 1946."
