E. J. Hughes Quotes

E. J. Hughes Quote: “My goal is to make all my paintings clear and realistic, even more understandable than a photograph.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “One of the main reasons I paint is because I think nature is so wonderful. I want to try to get my feelings of that down on canvas, if possible.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “If I didn’t have a conviction that a serious painter can portray Nature more profoundly than the best colour photography, I’d probably give it all up or go abstract or take up photography.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I am hoping that, with the added wisdom of old age, I can still look ahead for an improvement in tone, line, colour and composition.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “It takes more time to rework a painting than it takes to fill in the canvas in the first place. I wish I could get them all right with the first coat like many of the old masters could, but seem destined to have to rework to make them even passable.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “Unfortunately when I start to talk or when someone watches over my shoulders my pencil either stops or I draw meaningless lines.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I am trying to get my paintings a bit lighter in tone, as some of my recent oils have been mistaken for night scenes.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “The primitive style makes nature look like stage scenery.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I’m going to just sit down for a couple of weeks and do nothing but read who-dunnits and Art books. I feel my work is getting a bit dull and mechanical and this proposed resting should work up some enthusiasm in me.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “Worry, about the ‘thousand and one’ details entailed. My one-track mind has to be relieved of these worries completely or I cannot get started working on my paintings, or even get to sleep at night.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “As you can see, at my age – 48 – Art is still one big experiment.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I don’t know just what, but there will have to be some drastic changes made besides cutting down on boating to get my mind more on painting.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “It feels much better to me to think that an artist is working to show his appreciation of what already has been created than creating things himself.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “One of the things I like about our contract is that you have relieved me of a great deal of personal interviewing and corresponding, among other things, which allows me a lot more time for painting.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I felt landscapes would sell more readily, and not being equipped psychologically to be a teacher or commercial artist, that was important.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “It is definitely mostly due to the invention of the camera that all this design and emphasized paint quality have come into painting.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I’ve found from years of trial that the only way I can work is to make sketches in pencil from Nature, purely as reference material for future use in the studio.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “When I see these primitive effects coming into my pictures subconsciously, even though the perspective may be slightly out, I leave them in if it helps the general composition.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “The small figures that appear in my paintings are there only because they were there when I was working from nature on my preliminary sketches with pencil.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “It is a matter mostly of having the time to spare from my finished paintings to put in on travelling and sketching out of doors.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “I hope my work isn’t dismissed by the critics as illustration or photography.”
E. J. Hughes Quote: “Leonardo’s Mona Lisa sure would have lost out if he had spent only 2 of the 4 or 5 years he took to complete it. It is thinking about him and Ryder, among others, that partly makes me feel so awful to send away a ‘half-baked’ painting.”
