*throw all formulas out the window, they only hold you back
*see, don't think
*it's only when the painting starts telling you what do do are you really painting
*and the most fascinating idea in this post.......when you begin to paint he suggested to start with the area you can't easily give a name to. For instance WK gave the example, when painting a portrait don't start with the eye, start with that small place on the side of the cheek that can defy easy description. Hmmmm. Think about that. It's another way to take you away from "things."
PS It was nice to meet some of my blogger friends there- Paula (from upstate Maryland) and Nika (who came in from Florida for the lecture!)
PPS hi ho hi ho it's off the Frostburg I go!
