Quote for the day from Ladis Nizer 1902...
"A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brian is a craftsmanl; but a man who works with his hands, brain and heart is an ARTIST!

Finished a watercolor workshop and have rolled right into an acrylic for 9-sessions. This is the month that I am going to work on landscapes and flowers with a focus on shadows. Garden Stairs was created over a watercolor wash and finished up with acrylic. As to Shadows... take a look the next time you are in daylight... a white shirt's shadow is darker than a black shirt in the sunlight. Shadows are 2-values darker than the object and lighter in value as you travel away. Interesting stuff!
