"The more you practice, the less thinking you will have to do, which allows you to focus on the emotion of the painting. To me, feeling and emotion are the two most important aspects of the painting process. I express myself through painting in a way I can't with words. My portraits capture emotion and feeling in the subjects and speak for them just as clearly as words. With a little practice, you too can master this art!"
~Susan Miller Bradbury
"There are myriad techniques and tools that can be used to create a variety of textures and effects. By employing some of these different techniques, you can spice up your art and keep the painting process fresh, exciting, and fun!"
"It's helpful to approach the head with a general idea of what can be expected. With practice, you will automatically check for the basic forms and plane changes described below. Memorizing the planes early on will save you time."
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Leonardo da Vinci
