AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy birthday, Boudin

Boudin, Clouds over Sea, 1865


Eugene Boudin was born on this day in 1824.

Everything that is painted directly and on the spot has always a strength, a power, a vivacity of touch which one cannot recover in the studio. Three strokes of a brush in front of nature are worth more than two days of work at the easel.
