Why people believe they can’t draw - and how to prove they can | Graham Shaw | TEDxHull

Why is it that so many people think they can’t draw? Where did we learn to believe that? Graham Shaw will shatter this illusion – quite literally - in a very practical way. He’ll demonstrate how the simple act of drawing has the power to make a positive difference in the world. Graham specialises in the art of communication and has helped thousands of people to make important presentations. He is perhaps best known for his use of fast cartoon drawings to communicate ideas and is the author of ‘The Art of Business Communication’. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

01 ALCHEMY VISIONS — ‘In the details’

Surface details from the painting collection, ‘Alchemy Visions’. ** For the best viewing experience, view at highest resolution by clicking 'Settings' above, then ‘Quality’ and choosing 1080p HD or 720p HD. ** Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/katieswatland/ Website: https://katieswatland.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/people/Katie-Swatland/1228180255 ♦︎ — — — — — — — — — ♦︎ This has been a long time coming dear friends. As many of you know, I have been ‘off the grid’ so to speak, since Jan 11 of 2016. I turned my phone off, put up an automatic 'out of office’ reply on my email, withdrew from social media, friends, family and colleagues, in order to focus solely on my art and allow myself time to explore without distraction or outside influence. I wished to fully devote myself to this art form in an entirely new way than I had ever done before. It's what was needed in order to give myself the space to grow and truly allow my paintings to come from that sacred space within. ♦︎ I was going to give myself 3 months, or so I thought . . . My decision for taking this drastic step was of course inspired by the path of the lone samurai, Musashi, as well as all those epic inward journey myths that always seem to occur in some far away mystical land and partly, I imagine, from my childhood dream of becoming a Jedi. Still to this day, my favorite scenes are from “The Empire Strikes Back” when Luke undergoes training with Yoda . . . but digress do I . . . ;) What I thought would take 3 months of isolated focus and dedication to this way of being and living through my work, turned out to be not long enough, and at 6 months in, I realized that I just scratched the surface — there was so MUCH MORE to discover and so MUCH MORE to paint! I refused to give up and instead, I dove in deeper. I covered all my clocks to eliminate the elemental restriction of time and kept painting . . . kept training . . . kept focus . . . At this time, I can’t quite clearly see what the meaning or purpose of all this is just yet, nor what the fate will be of this collection, (which is insisting to be named ‘Alchemy Visions’), — but I do know that if I am ever to find out, the next step I must take is to start sharing openly with you and no longer keep hidden away. ✨ There is a time and a season for everything. So here I am, in the final stages of this journey I embarked on many moons ago, with 3 large paintings left to paint until I may call this collection complete. I will be sharing what has happened thus far, and the process of how I will complete the 'remaining 3' on Instagram daily. Here on Youtube, I hope to keep making these video shorts, or ‘impressions’ , on the collection because I find them enjoyable, they reveal things, and most importantly, they offer the paintings a way to communicate with me and you. We are in this together now. I’ll be here, reminding myself to breathe . . . 1 brushstroke @ a time . . . 1 breath @a time . . . ✨ When we are free to create, anything is possible. ✨ ♦1 square [ ] @ a time: https://www.instagram.com/katieswatland/ ♦1 dynamic rectangle [ ~ ] @ a time:https://www.youtube.com/c/katieswatland ♦︎ — — — — — — — — — ♦︎
