Drawing and colour are not distinct

“Drawing and colour are not distinct, at the same time we paint we draw; the more colour gets harmonized, the more precise drawing becomes. When colour is the richest, form reaches its fullness. Contrast and tones relationships, these are the secret of drawing and relief.”

Paul Cézanne, quoted by Emile Bernard in his article “Paul Cézanne” (revue l’Occident, July 1904)
