The image above shows two different drawing on the left is a drawing by Vincent Van Gogh, and the right is my attempt to copy the stroke by Van Gogh. The insight gain from experience is even though we have our own subject matter but the ‘style’ matters. By emulating the ‘style’ of Van Gogh, I am able to experience what Van Gogh is experiencing.   You will be patient dragging your pen and control the ink to get the touch of Van Gogh. Try it, and it works.
