Monday Motivator: Listen With Your Eyes

Monsieur P Artiste Monday Motivator from Marion Boddy-Evans Isle of Skye art Studio“Observation is like listening with your eyes, but you have to be quiet for a moment (stop working) and just look, the longer the better. …

“The mind loves to smooth things over, straighten things out, making forms more perfect and symmetrical than they are.

“All of those wonderful little idiosyncrasies, the odd twists and turns that give things their character and visual truth are lost when we rely on memory.”
— Christopher Gallego, Why My Art Students Hate Me
