"The sketch hunter has delightful days of drifting about among people, in and out of the city, going anywhere, everywhere, stopping as long as he likes - no need to reach any part, moving in any direction, following the call of interests. He moves through life as he finds it, not passing negligently the things that he loves, but stopping to know them, and to note them in the shorthand of his sketchbook, a box of oils with a few small panels, the fit of his pocket, or on his drawing pad. Like any hunter he hits or misses. He is looking for what he loves, he tries to capture it. Those who are not hunters do not see these things. The hunter is learning to see and to understand - to enjoy."
~Robert Henri
