Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hate to paint portraits! I hope never to paint another portrait in my life. Portraiture may be all right for a man in his youth, but after forty I believe that manual dexterity deserts one, and, besides, the color-sense is less acute. Youth can better stand the exactions of a personal kind that are inseparable from portraiture. I have had enough of it.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Color is an inborn gift, but appreciation of value is merely training of the eye, which everyone ought to be able to acquire.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
