I believe an artist must never fool themselves into believing there's nothing more to learn.
Or worse, that what is left to learn is too hard. I guess I'm a slow learner, as it has taken me over twenty-five years to become a fairly good painter. And that is all I am. Fortunately it is enough that people want to buy my work and hang it on their walls.
So what do I want to learn this winter? COLOR - how to mix more purely; how to limit my pallet more than I do; how to combine hues to provide a glow and a richness to my work; how to pre-tint my canvas with the correct tone for the piece I am planning to paint.
And how will I go about learning these things?
