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.

I like Chinatown. It’s had an influence on my life! The colors of the signage really affected me early on. This goes back to the old Lower East side too where you’d see reds, yellows and blues and just garish raucous colors really compressed together. The whole area is compressed and my studio is small so it’s compressed too. The compression in my work comes at least partially out of that.
