I like this one :)
The "like an artist" is the key.
He's right! Learn how to do techniques right and then figure out your short cuts or artistic deviant. You'll be much happier with your sewing. - RSmith
I thought this so applied to sewing. And who's to argue with Picasso?
So true, I was on a rant about this today.
I don't think I'm at a level in my sewing at which I would know if this is true, although I believe it in other spheres, but it calls to mind the Frost line: "Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down." I tend to feel that just as in writing great poetry, there is behind-the-scenes elegance/structure/method in sewing that renders a final garment sophisticated and yet seemingly effortless (even a basic one).
I agree with this wholeheartedly!
