A quote from Oil Painting Essentials;

“In order to depict something truthfully, the artist not only has to decode external reality, but has to probe the nature of perception. How we perceive is just as important as what we perceive. Art can only occur when biases are confronted, filters removed, and the artist opens up to uncorrupted reality. When that happens, beauty can flourish.” (Links to an external site.)
