from A Case of Automatic Drawing by Professor William James in The Popular Science Monthly, January 1904, page 195

“Although while drawing I feel more or less drowsy, my senses seem in some respects to be very keen. To my eyes the pictures usually appear highly exaggerated in beauty as well as in distinctness. So much is this the case that on completion of a picture and having taken it up to examine it, the distinctness and beauty which were so apparent while drawing, have departed.”
