"Smoosch your brush..... capture the essence, leave the obvious vague............your job is to let the viewer see the beauty you want them to see....
Don't let the truth ruin a good painting.......paint everything with a yellow, red and a blue! ...Less is always MORE!.............. EDIT EDIT EDIT.
When you think you have the right color...change it!"
