“Painting isn’t so difficult when you don’t know... But when you do... it’s quite a different matter.”
Edgar Degas (1834-1917)

“It is only by drawing often, drawing everything, drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.”
Camille Pissarro (1830-1903)
