Catedral de Burgos III, watercolor alla prima
In the January-February issue of Artists Magazine, there is a recommendation I highly support: "Spend time at a museum. Aspire not to copy, but to seek what they sought. They depth of your art will be in direct proportion to your love and understanding of your subject." And I add: keep a record of that museum visit, write notes, copy/sketch one of the masterpieces that struck you the most, study it, analyze each stroke, learn. Your next paintings will reflect what you have learnt.
