How do you best draw?

I was with a private client the other day and the way he was drawing caused me to ask him if he had ever tried standing up to draw. Many times in my classes I let the students try drawing standing up using charcoal, using lap boards, and other types of instruments. Every artist has their own way of working. I myself hate to stand and draw and prefer a low angle to my drafting board. Others like their board at a 90 degree angle and standing up.

If you are having trouble with your drawing and find it uncomfortable then try working in another position and see if that helps. It maybe the trick to a new process for your art.
