“The beginner in painting begins by copying nature in all literalness, leaving nothing out and putting nothing in; they make it look like the place or person or thing. By and by they will learn to omit the superfluous and to grasp the essentials and arrange them into a more powerful and significant whole.” John F. Carlson
