getting the hand to lead the brain, rather than letting the brain lead the hand

“My drawings don’t start with a ‘beautiful mark.’ […] It has to be a mark of something out there in the world.
It doesn’t have to be an accurate drawing, but it has to stand for an observation, not something that is abstract, like an emotion.”

William Kentridge:
