There is no such thing as talent. What they call talent is nothing but the capacity for doing continuous work in the right way.— Winslow Homer
The most scandalous Winslow Homer quotes to get the best of your day
I regret very much that I have painted a picture that requires any description.
The life that I have chosen gives me my full hours of enjoyment.
You have the sky overhead giving one light;
then the reflected light from whatever reflects; then the direct light of the sun; so that, in the blending and suffusing of these several luminations, there is no such thing as a line to be seen anywhere.
You will see, in the future I will live by my watercolors.
The most interesting part of my life is of no concern to the public.
Never put more than two waves in a picture; it's fussy.
All is lovely outside my house and inside my house and myself.
It is wonderful how much depends upon the relations of black and white A black and white, if properly balanced, suggests colour.
I thought for a change I would give up drinking, and it was a great mistake, and, although I reduced the size of my nose and improved my beauty, my stomach suffered.
I prefer every time a picture composed and painted outdoors.
The thing is done without your knowing it.
Look at nature, work independently, and solve your own problems.
The life that I have chosen gives me my full hours of enjoyment for the balance of my life. The sun will not rise, or set, without my notice, and thanks.
Artists should never look at pictures, but should stutter in a language of their own.
If a man wants to be an artist, he should never look at pictures.
I will paint for money any time.
The sun will not rise or set without my notice, and thanks.
Only think of my being alive with a reputation!
What's the use? The people are too stupid. They do not understand.
Oh what a friend chance can be — when it chooses.
When you paint, try to put down exactly what you see.
Whatever else you have to offer will come out anyway.
