I love reading older art magazines. They are filled with tips and inspiration. I buy them in lots on ebay and browse through them when I have some downtime. I came across an article in a 2011 issue of American Artist about artist Kathy Anderson and I want to share a nugget of wisdom from the article.
Kathy’s flower painting are just wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her approach and background. One thing really stood out to me though. She studies with Richard Schmidt and Nancy Guzik and one of the things Nancy told her is to “Make every Inch Beautiful” in your painting.
I love this advice!
