One of my favourite examples of a word with an awful lot of meaning wrapped into four letters
It seems simple enough. As in when we draw a picture right?
Let’s think about it. This meaning of the word seems to stem more broadly from draw, as in to draw out. Say when we go to the nurse and she takes some blood, she will draw it out, or more simple put, draw some blood. To draw, in this sense, suggests something that comes out, perhaps painfully, or even carefully. If one has ever tried to draw, as in art, one can well sense why it is such an appropriate word.
