Drawing Problems: Thought in Action

Abstract : I investigate some aspects of the structure of the production of drawings, by developing a practice-based phenomenology articulated around some "drawing problems". The examples I chose cluster around decision making in drawing from life. I make a case for a propositional, explicit judgment-based action structure, that makes it possible to accommodate some typical practices used in addressing drawing problems. I further hint to by-products (e.g., attention modulation) and "surrounding practices" (e.g. communication during the observation of a drawing activity) that find a plausible explanation in the propositional account of drawing.
