Description A Basket of Chips Shadows Across the Road (watercolor), 1929 Courtesy of the Brigham Young University Art Museum Collection "Do not make your button holes in the cloth till the suit is ready to try on." "What did you rub it all out for? An architect doesn't tear down the building because a door or window is out of place." "Use your brains to work with as well as your hands." "No matter how fine the technique, there must be mind effort with it." "Take hold as far from the point of your tool as possible, then you cannot niggle." "Draw from the shoulder; it will then show strength and firmness, at the same time retain delicacy, as a violinist handles his bow." "You; dainty, slender young woman should express your- self in the delicate line you draw, not clumsily like a plowman." "That drawing looks as though it were done by a person of eighty years of age with a tottering trembling touch. ,Don't be afraid; sweep the charcoal across the paper with firmness but yet so lightly that there is no line showing." 76
