Claude Monet, A Spot on the Banks of the Seine, 1881
"I remember his once saying to me: ‘When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you- a tree, a house, a field, or whatever. Merely think, here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives your own naive impression of the scene before you.’"
