Art Tip File: Spend Time at a Museum

“Study the works of the great masters. Aspire not to copy, but to seek what they sought. Try to understand the questions they asked themselves when they made decisions in their work. Then ask the same questions of yourself, but try to come up with your own answers and steer clear of theirs.” ~ William Hosner from the January/February 2012 issue of The Artist’s Magazine (Let It Snow! When the weather outside is frightful, painting snow is just delightful. William Hosner, T. Allen Lawson, Colleen Howe, Bill Teitsworth and Stephen Quiller share tips for depicting the quintessential winter landscape.).
