More than a camera

The camera can see a lot more than I can but when I paint I want to paint something that the camera cannot see. The complexity of nature, its light and how it plays on objects, is detailed down to the last molecule and beyond. The painter takes the basic information in a simplified form he or she sees and expresses a feeling about it in their heart and soul. That's something a camera can't do and something no book can teach.
