the job is not to describe

"The job is not to describe or use local colors, but to use color combinations to create the sensuous reality of light and space."
I found that written in my sketchbook. J.M.W. Turner wrote this once and I have held those words inside me. With Turner's words I have a kindred spirit.

Thanks for passing on the great JWM Turner quote. I put a short post about it on our plein air painting group's blog (http://pleinairdaneco.blogspot.com/) Some food for thought for all landscape painters. Your work is always inspiring, Loriann!
