What I meant was that small children will have tried paiting with a
crayon, but might never have seen a paintcan.

It might be because I couldn't draw entirely correctly - it was more of a

this could produce the kind of effect I am trying to describe, where a
line drawn one way is slightly different than when drawn the other way.
