Monday Motivator: Your Painting Style is Your Subject

Art motivational quote

“…’style’ is a sort of subject, a statement of your interests.”
Frank Auerbach

I stopped reading last night when I got to this quote in Frank Auerbach: Speaking and Painting (by Catherine Lampert, page 42) as it sent my mind in circles. About how we struggle to find a style, yet it’s something that rather finds us. You can’t help but develop a style as you explore what interests you in terms of how you paint and what you use. The hard part is limiting yourself, sticking to the main path (medium) most of the time and not jogging off down every side track that presents itself, yet not merely repeating yourself.
