Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Sometimes, I approach the canvas with a clear objective in mind, knowing exactly what I’m going to work on – be it a corner of the canvas or a feature of a face or whatever. Other times, I have absolutely no clue. Just step up and see what happens, letting it form and evolve kind of organically. And, yep – it’s the latter approach that yields the best results.
