David Hockney Saying: We don't all see the same way at all. Even if I'm sitting looking at you, there is always the memory of you as well. And a memory is now.

Saying about David Hockney: Until I saw my drawings replayed on the iPad, I'd never seen myself draw. Someone watching me would be concentrating on the exact moment, but I'd always be thinking a little bit ahead.
