The Girl at the Gate', Sir George Clausen, 1889

So why evince art, if this is a screenwriting blog on a screenwriter's website? Because, the overall brilliance of Clausen's painting aside, the artist captures the girl's inner world - her turbulence, her sense of imprisonment ... 'Is this my life? Will I become like these old people behind me? Is this all there is? ... in her expression with phenomenal subtlety. As a screenwriter, you must, too. You must paint characters with words with as much sensitivity and nuance, and present those characters to the world.

How will you do this? Inate talent, and endless practice. Happy screenwriting.
