My son loves to draw. He showed talent in sketching at a very young age. It calms him and feeds his soul. It is one of his favorite past times. He started out drawing things that interest him. When he was five it was dinosaurs, and at age ten it was dragons and knights.
He recently came home with a library book on drawing faces and proceeded to study the book and practice the art of capturing the human face.
He is one of my favorite artists, although I might be biased.
