Art quotes - Michael Holter -
Michael Holter, “Rock, Paper,” 2017, watercolor, 16 x 12 in., Collection the artist, Plein air and studio

“You have to let go of the need to paint every detail. It’s not necessary to paint every brick on a wall, for example. Look for and paint shapes, starting with the largest. Learn to paint with large brushes and develop a watercolor shorthand to suggest rather than overstate. Let viewers fill in the areas that you choose to leave to their imagination.”
— Michael Holter (“Letting Loose,” February-March 2019)
