Quotes by David Milne - (3 quotes)

David Milne - From the Emotion category:

David Milne - From the Materials category:

Anything is good painting material once you get to know it. (David Milne)

David Milne - From the Watercolours category:

Watercolour could have been used more by the modernists. It is so direct, and when the white paper convention is accepted, so powerful, even brutal, that it would seem an ideal medium. (David Milne)
