The only way to understand painting is to go and look at it. And if out of a million visitors
there is even one to whom art means something, that is enough to justify museums
~ Pierre-Auguste Renoir ~
Accurate drawing, accurate colour, is perhaps not the essential thing to aim at,
because the reflection of reality in a mirror, if it could be caught, colour and all,
would not be a picture at all, no more than a photograph
~ Vincent van Gogh ~
Clouds are fascinating to paint because they are the only
element in a landscape that possesses free movement
~ John F. Carlson ~
I have about 10 “drafts” saved for blog post ideas but haven’t been feeling like writing much and sharing my thoughts. Partly because I feel my thoughts are too scattered and partly because I think too much. So for the next week, I’m simply sharing a photo and a quote each day.
