“With all my training, I still need to have that fresh look, that child-like attack or purpose,” Remsen says. “When you see children draw they take off. All children are born artists. The task is to retain some of that natural ability as the techniques become more complex. I have to strip away all of it and get back to the childlike approach to being spontaneous.”
Behind every good artist is a storyteller. What is the story here?
