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.

Creativity is the path on which we walk. Looking for it is missing the point. What we seek is expression, and a means by which we can see something new, capture something unique, and show the world. Looking for creativity is like looking for oxygen. Instead, learn to breathe.

— David du Chemin
