Showing Off, But Not Uncool

I can't draw anything but stick-figures, but I understand, technically, the process artists use. They look at their target image, and - in their minds - reduce it to its component elements of line, curve, light, dark, and shade. Then they make their hands reproduce what's in their minds.

In theory quite simple, as elegant things often seem.

An artist is one who can make the elegant look not only simple, but easy.

In this case, painting with a basketball looks easy.

Don't think I'll try it, though:
