Reading Grahame Sydney's Biography... major New Zealand Artist.

As in all great painting, the art and the maker are inseparable, one the mirror of the other.

Achievement sustained over a life time of courage and dedication.

Oeuvre- meaning- the body of work of a painter.

Consider relationships between: Mass + perspective, surface immediacy and background colour + form.

Your unique vision of nature is a matter of catching the instant look of moments when they are most beautiful.

Learn as others learned when it comes to the mastery of technique, be yourself in everything else.

What you want your art to mirror about your own self + life.

Henri (old master and teacher) - Look and study your immediate surrounds. Your direct experience. Translate this into your painting.
