“One does not have to be naturally talented to become an artist. Anyone can learn techniques to draw, paint, sculpt, etc., with discipline and careful study. To make artwork, though, one needs a vision, something to say. The artist also must understand form. Both can also be learned. With practice and devotion, you discover what it is you have to say, and the careful study of composition and color theory leads to what eventually feels like intuition.” – Sarah Jacobs
