…to really learn how to paint, attention must also be given to the question of “What am I painting?” – in other words, “What am I seeing?”. It’s not enough to know ‘how to paint’, if all that means is knowing the various techniques of the painting process. One must see, and understand what one sees, in order to paint well. Each stage and exercise in the painting process is accompanied by its own modes of visual analysis. It is as much by the acquisition of these modes of visual analysis, as by the acquisition of the manual and procedural techniques, that we learn to paint.
