The text discusses Luquet's concept of intellectual and visual realism and the concept of internal models. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of the analytical observation method on children's drawings, regardless of the "internal model" in different ages. The sample of N = 215 children, of which kindergarten age N = 86, and primary school N = 129. The type of research is quantitative and transverse, the method of research is causal experimental, and the research technique is content analysis. The instrument for data collection was a visual task. It was determined that Luquet's internal model is very flexible, and that children before the stage of intellectual realism are able to draw by presented model, sometimes with no loss of expression of artistic action.
