Drawing is the scaffold of art and art in its own right. A sketch helps me capture the essence of an object. A quick gesture or contour drawing helps build mass, shadow and volume. Since there are no lines in nature, only what the brain perceives as having an edge, I draw without lines except where they might occur accidentally, say where masses or shadow merge. As a preliminary study for a painting drawing is a great way to see the values and light behind the color and manipulate compositional elements.
