When I travel I often don’t get time to sit and sketch at leisure, so I will take note of a particular color combination in my journal, and then drop the color into “stripes” when I have time, in the hotel room. I have hundreds of these visual notes and use this technique when to teach students color theory beyond Pantone and Josef Albert.

"I think i can conclude that life, as it passes before our eyes, is a creative force - that one thing is put usefully upon another - that what we lose in one exchange is more than replenished by the next, that it is only us, only our pitiful misunderstandings that make for crookedness, darkness and anger"
