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.

Be alert to the senses. Elevate the ordinary. Art is about a heightened state of awareness.
