Quotes

Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.  ~Pablo Picasso

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What I dream of is an "art" of "balance"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. ~Pablo Picasso

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you hear a voice within you saying, ''You are not a painter,'' then by all means what does it mean to paint? and that voice will be silenced. Vincent van Gogh Quotes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his/her pictures.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The way to learn to do things is to do things. The way to learn a trade is to work at it. Success teaches how to succeed. Begin with the determination to succeed, and the work is half done already.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Creativity starts from here ...... “It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.”  — Edward de Bono

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Painting is essentially not just a combination of lines, forms, colors, tones, texture and spacing ..... Painting mainly need to capture emotions and expressions .... retain the impact for a long period.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watercolor - Oil - Acrylic - Airbrush ... you could start with any one of these .... the one that excites you the most ....
