What is gestalt? And how does it hurt your drawing?
In psychology there is a term called gestalt. Oxford dictionary defines it as:
“an organized whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts.”
That’s what I want to talk about with you today.
Our brain defaults to this idea of gestalt and this concept and its application can get in the way of us seeing all of the details we want to see, and prevents us from achieving realistic effects in our art.
