” We learn more from facing challenges in a painting than we might learn from getting everything right the first time. If we are never faced with painting problems to solve, we would be without challenge and would never grow as artists. The best prize is confidence and this is reserved for those who thirst for a deeper understanding” Susan Harrison-Tustain
