Wyeth to Wyeth

From Under the Gables:
"My father was a terrific technician. He could take any medium and make the most of it. Once I was making a watercolor of some trees. I had made a very careful drawing and I was just filling in the lines. He came along and looked at it and said, 'Andy you've got to free yourself.' Then he took a brush and filled it with paint and made this sweeping brushstroke. I learned more then from a few minutes of watching what he did than I've ever learned since." ~Andrew Wyeth, as quoted in "Wyeth's World," by Henry Adams, Smithsonian Magazine, June 2006 (Read more.)
