The Best Advice I Ever Got

Fukuhara.jpgHenry Fukuhara (1914-2010) shared some invaluable tips he gleaned throughout his creative journey in the December 2005 issue of Watercolor Magic:

“The best advice I ever got came from Edgar Whitney and Carl Molno. They had different opinions about a lot of things, but they agreed on these ideas:

  • Focus on shapes.
  • You must plan before you paint.
  • Drawing is the mother of art.”
