Monday Motivator: Paint Outside the Lines

Monday Motivator Motivation Quote

‘I discourage any elaborate drawing-in of the motif to be painted, either with pencil, pen or brush. This produces a fear of the pigment or paint; a kind of dry, joyless “working up to the edges,” and leads subsequently to a kind of “colored drawings”.’
— John F. Carlson, Carlson’s Guide to Landscape Painting, page 42

Are you painting between your security-blanket lines or outside the lines?
