Quotes by David Bayles  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“You make good work by (among other things) making lots of work that isn't very good, and gradually weeding out the parts that aren't good, the parts that aren't yours. It's called feedback, and it's the most direct route to learning about your own vision. It's also called doing your work. After all, someone has to do your work, and you're the closest person around.”
David Bayles, Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking

“Vision, Uncertainty, and Knowledge of Materials are inevitabilities that all artists must acknowledge and learn from: vision is always ahead of execution, knowledge of materials is your contact with reality, and uncertainty is a virtue.”
David Bayles, Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking

“To the artist, all problems of art appear uniquely personal. Well, that's understandable enough, given that not many other activities routinely call one's basic self-worth into question.”
