"There is no bad subject,

just bad paintings"





"Mother nature is the best teacher."








"Never say die, until it is dry."




"Indicate, don't state."








"If you don't 'see' it when you start, there will be nothing there when you finish."






"Drawing is the skeleton of your work,

paint is the flesh."




  "Keep your eyes open for ideas."





"Never give up!"



For sketching Joseph recommends the Escoda Travel Brush which is one of a set of brushes specifically designed for him.
