With a large drawing, there’s much paper to fill.  I begin my large drawings as I begin all things — with the largest shapes first.  But after much has been covered and developed, there’s still much to go, and I find myself drawing and seeing a section at a time.  It is as though I throw out my line into one corner of the pond, fishing there.  And the individual fishes come into focus as though swimming up to watch me, as I “watch” them.  They watch me draw them.
