Brushstrokes


Our lesson in painting class this week was about brushstrokes. Following is a favorite quote: "Strokes carry a message whether you will it or not. The stroke is just like the artist at the time he makes it. All the certainties, all the uncertainties, all the bigness of his spirit and all the littlenesses are in it." Robert Henri, The Art Spirit

And from Celeste Vaught's workshop, always ask yourself, "Do I need this brushstroke to tell the story?"
