Why not take a picture it will last longer. It will stop time for that exact moment. But! Why not draw it instead? Sketch the figure that grabs your attention. It will be more personal, special, and give you a feeling of pride. You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you drew it. It will be more beautiful in comparison to snapping a picture. You will draw the light curves, and hard lines. Shade in the shadows and bring out the highlights. Make its surface as smooth or rough as you like. You can catch the beauty you see when your subject grabs your eyes. Catch what you love and admire with your own eyes and hand. Catching small details and what stands out to you. Whether, it is a favorite symbol, object, or even your beloved. Bring out the inner glow of their eyes. What does their body language say to you? Bring out what is being said when you look at what you want to capture. Show the scene in the back or even create a place better suited. Draw an object, your memories, or even your dreams; draw what you love. It will always be there frozen, during that special moment in time of inspiration.
