For many of you, it’s already in your mind. A friend who makes a living and teaches art classes has a painting on her wall that she uses for training students. It contains the basic elements of the painting process.
How long would it take to draw a single full page painting?
If you are going to draw every single line and line segment, then at some point you are going to draw a full page.

How big is my painting?

It’s just like taking pictures: you only need one time to know whether or not you’ve gone all the way home. When you’re done drawing the first page, you may not even notice there’s
