A motivating statement sustains the spirit. Some of the time it comes at simply the correct time. In some cases we simply aren't prepared for it. I jump at the chance to give my class a workmanship quote every week. I frequently will print them on little sheets of paper so they can put them up on their easel. I didn't have a statement during the current week. Be that as it may, I was certain something would come to me.

What's more, it did. A magnificent statement from Mary Whyte dropped out of an envelope as I was cleaning the studio. It was only the correct words I expected to peruse and share. I firmly have confidence in what Mary says and it is a useful suggestion to all specialists however particularly we who paint from photographs.


"Never underestimate your feelings. They are the power behind each extraordinary work. You should endeavor to paint thoughts and excellence, not things. Simply duplicating items will prompt work that is journalistic as opposed to beautiful, and the outcomes will be artworks that never emerge from the group. When you paint toss your entire heart into the creation and watch what happens."

- Mary Whyte

I painted the present painting from one of my photographs however I drew on my experience and sentiments more than I duplicated each blossom and piece of sod. I was transported back to the day I took the photograph. I was on a street trip out west with my VIP companions. It was early morning and we chose to get off the interstate and take after along on the frontage road. It was a savvy choice. Truly it took us a considerable measure longer to arrive however we saw so much excellence what we would have missed on the off chance that we were going 80 mph. This field of blue wildflower was one of the spots of magnificence on the blue parkway.

Do you paint from your heart? Or on the other hand do you give the reference photograph a chance to get in your direction?
