Title: Design Drawing
Author: Francis D.K. Ching with Steven P. Juroszek
"Skillful technique is of little value, however, unless accompanied by understanding the perceptual principles on which techniques are based." (page 2)
I find this quote an important one because it illustrates to the reader, me, that even if you're the best drawer in the world you can still be lacking in skill if you do not fully understand the subject you're drawing.
"At the heart of all drawing is an interactive process of seeing." (page 3)
This quote reads as important to me because it solidifies that you must truly observe and try to understand your subject fully before you can successfully draw it.
"Drawing encourages us to pay attention and to experience the full range of visual phenomena and appreciate the uniqueness of most ordinary things." (page 6)
I found this quote to be fantastic because it points out to the reader that you need to look at the smallest of elements (as well as the obvious and large components) in your subject of interest when drawing to get all the detail correct and therefore produce a better quality image.
