I have been an art instructor for over 40+ years and firmly believe that it’s important for the artist to know the fundamentals of art, drawing, composition, perspective, and color theory. It is only with this grounding in basics that the artist can give full play to his or her imagination, and depart from reality (either a little or a lot) to create the mood he or she is seeking to convey. After all, it is imagination coupled with skill and craftsmanship that is the key for any artist. Imagination is the child within all of us and cannot be lost.
