So, we ask, how do you know how long these poles should be as they recede? I was taught, he says. Not by any formal teacher, but by casual comments by friends and acquaintances. How do you know about shadows? He learned that too. He confides that for a long time he figured that if an object was red, its shadow would be red too. "But I was told it wasn't," he says. But how do you know about red? He knows that there's an important visual quality to seen objects called "colour" and that it varies from object to object. He's memorised what has what colour and even which ones clash.
Hi Zed - I am Esref's manager and have worked next to him for more than 10 years. I have witnessed him doing just all of the various types of painting that he does. To answer about Sewell - it makes raised lines (actually on both sides of the paper which is normal printing or typing paper). Esref draws with his right hand while following with his left hand. Sometimes when he is demonstrating, I lift up his left hand and announce "Now he is truly blind." He must follow with his left hand in order to know where he is. Happy to answer more questions - by the way - I don't even know what "blog" means. Glad you are so interested! Joan
