Monday Motivator: Be Phenomenonalistic

Monsieur P Artiste Monday Motivator from Marion Boddy-Evans Isle of Skye art Studio

“A reliance on repeated happy accidents is indeed a slim reed to lean on, and the phenomenonalistic painter must exert as much unobtrusive control as he can to capitalize on accidents and to arrange or predict what might happen as a result of various manipulations of surface and medium.”

Edward Betts, Creative Landscape Painting, p102

Note to self: “remember ‘phenomenonalistic’ to throw into a conversation about happy accidents in painting”.
