Tips for Improving Your Paintings

Drawing by Rembrandt van Rijn | "Reclining Lion" | pen and paint brush | ca. 1650

Class notes from art camp classes with George Liebert and Dan Gustin, Oxbow, MI, summer 1991.

Make a list of verbs and adjectives about your own work.

It is better to paint from memory, for thus your work will be your own; your sensation, your intelligence, and your soul will triumph over the eye of the amateur.

— Paul Gauguin
