Van Gogh
Vincent drew all the time. He drew before every painting. He drew to understand. What was he trying to understand?
The world around him, the world he inhabited, both the visual world and the tactile world. And so he drew. He used marks to define the objects, the space, the textures he saw. He also drew the things that we do not see or we ignore like wind, light air, love. Can you see wind or do yo see the effects of it. Think Starry Night.

Some things to remember - Compulsive and obsessive, His point of view (artist's point of view) is important in seeing his art. Painted the world we don't see, light, wind, air and nature as being greater than man. Van Gogh also painted the soul of things, portraits, nature, whatever caught his attention. Drawings were done before each painting though in the process of painting things would change. He painted outside like a lot of the Impressionists. This is called plein air painting.
Van Gogh was labeled a Post Impressionist because he was 2nd generation. Monet , Manet, etc would have been the first generation then being called Impressionists. Post means after.
