It is widely accepted that accurate drawing, a sense of proportions and perspective, and mastery over one’s medium are the necessary skills for anyone doing realistic paintings, and these can be achieved by diligent study. Acquiring these skills is the artist’s achievement. However, beyond what we see and experience in the external world, is a vaster one within our minds. The artist tries to express and give form to this hidden internal universe through his work.
This expression may be realistic, abstract, or in any other form. This is the artist’s true contribution.
