I agree with you completely! For the first 2~3 years of my drawing and painting lessons, I was taught to copy from photographs exactly. And I did it exceedingly well, but it took so much time and effort. And yes, my personality/air failed to show through any of those works.

Now, I have a new art teacher who teaches me exactly what you have just said. Well actually he puts the order of importance like this: point > line > plane. So getting the right, precise point is more important than line, which is more important than plane (sorry if plane is not the right word... what I mean is like, the shaded bits). And his way (also yours) IS a lot faster.

Thanks for sharing this with us all! And I love Paul Kalle's works.
