Matisse on drawing

"I always considered the drawing, not as an exercise of particular skilfulness, but primarily as a means of expressing intimate feelings and describing mood, but as a simplified way to make simpler, spontaneous, the expression which should without heaviness reach the spirit of the viewer."

Matisse “Note d’un peintre sur son dessin” (in “Ecrits et propos sur l’art”)
