When learning the craft – it is best to seek the advice of experts! I wanted to share some of the things I think about when painting….
“It is mysterious working with colour” Maria Luisa Cruz.
“An image reflected in a mirror, a rainbow in the sky, and a painted scene
Make their impressions upon the mind, but in essence are other than what they seem
Look deeply at the world, and see an illusion, a magician’s dream.”
– The Seventh Dali Lama.
“There is no blue without yellow and without orange.” — Vincent Van Gogh
“If you see a tree as blue, then make it blue.”— Paul Gauguin
“For those colours which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a pure white ground” – Leonardo da Vinci
“ There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.” Pablo Picasso
