To an artist it matters little what the subject is before him. Whether it is a sweeping landscape, a bowl of fruit, or a nude woman, the only concern is to interpret the infinite assemblage of shapes, lines, tones, and colours. A shape is a shape, a tone a tone - whether the object depicted is a rock, an ocean wave, or the soft swell of a breast. The task is to draw convincingly and impart some of the beauty inherent in the original.
