Monday Motivator: Let the Painting Speak

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

“It is important to allow a painting to speak for themselves in terms of balance of mark, gesture, colour and compositional balance…

“I am not particularly interested in illustrating a particular scene with every blade of grass, nor do I want location to be particularly obvious. I want the paintings to speak for themselves as entity.”

— Contemporary artist William Wood

Perhaps when someone looking at your landscape painting asks “Where is it?”, the answer should be “Wherever you want it to be”.

  1. I write Thoroughbred pedigrees for a living, but paint for loving. Your emails keep the art blood flowing while I’m in my frantic work season. I love your work, insight and style. Bon journee!
