Chuck Jones: On Painting with Oils


"Working in oils comes the closest to bridging the painter to the sculptor.  Oil paints are tactile unlike watercolors–the touch and movement of the brush on the canvas is sensuous and treacherous.  Your mistakes are as meaningful as your triumphs–like making love.  It takes an unruly mind to find the unique discipline peculiar to each painter."  –Chuck Jones
