The Art of MorganWeistling |
amer ican impressionist
“I was inspired by the contrasts in
this subject,” mused artist Morgan
Weistling. “The older Grandpa’s
large rough hands alongside his young
granddaughter’s petite, gentle hands.
In the presence of this little young lady
the biggest, most worldly man would
be reduced to a dainty teetotaler (or
shall I say ‘tea toddler’?). She is in
charge and you will drink dirty water
if she says so.” Morgan Weistling’s
instructional videos implore painters
to “edit out the unimportant. Stay
away from minor details that don’t
help tell the story.”
