Top ten words of artistic advice

10.
Grab your balls and be a man about it!

9.
Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.

8.
There’s nothing more daunting than a blank canvas. Fill it in quickly. Worry about the detail later.

7.
Trying to be great or outstanding in art can be an overwhelming thought. Just try and suck a bit less each day.

6.
Work to live, don’t live to work.

5.
If the milk is spoiled and you put it back in the fridge, don’t expect it to be better the next time you take it out.

4.
Nobody’s going to care how much you can think outside the box if you can’t colour inside the lines.

3.
Everything in art’s been done, but it hasn’t been done by you.

2.
What do you mean you don’t have access to life drawing classes? If you have internet,
just go to Google and type “big tits ass xxx” or something and you should get millions of references!

1.
Better keep your mouth shut and be mistaken for an idiot than open it and prove that you are one.
