Words of Wisdom from Howard Pyle

October 28, 2009

Matthew Innis has posted some excellent quotes from the illustration giant Howard Pyle.  These quotes were recorded and preserved by Pyle’s assistant Charles Defeo.

After the first half-hour of work, your lay-in should kill at a hundred yards.

If you can make a picture with two values only, you have a strong and powerful picture. If you use three values, it is still good, but if you use four or more, throw it away.

They will never shoot you for what you leave out of a picture.
