Art is theft, Ctd Jack Vettriano

The self-taught Scottish painter Jack Vettriano was asked by Terri Eaton of the Artists and Illistrators magazine of November 2013, 'how did you learn to paint?' He said:
"I copied the techniques of lots of artists to see how they managed to get the paint down."
Asked what the best advice ever given to him he said: "The art critic W Gordon Smith advised me not to be sidelined by other people's opinions and to follow my own ideas." Asked for his inspiration he said: "Caravaggio for creating atmosphere and Francis Bacon for his imagination - though I'm probably intrigued by his lifestyle more than his work."
