More quotes on the Artistic Process

"The only way to learn about new styles was to make a great deal of art." Milton Avery

"During these twelve years (after arrival in New York in 1925) he allowed himself the freedom to experiment without feeling the need to freeze his art into a permanent style. His openness to new ideas, his obvious talent, and his ability to wait patiently for maturity made him a role model". Robert Hughes about Milton Avery,

" The most important tool the artist fashions, through constant practice, is faith in the ability to produce miracles when they are needed" Mark Rothko

"If anyone works long enough on anything, inspiration occurs a bit" Frank Auerbach

"An artist should observe nature, but never confuse it with painting" Picasso

"We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own, and other people's models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open" Shakti Gawain
