the Secret to ART
yep, here it is. after years of study i found the secret. it's profoundly simple once you have mileage under the belt.
- know your visual goal (what are you interested in? form, light?)
- take your time. let the brain guide the hand. don't aimlessly scribble. s l o w d o w n...be deliberate.
- really be present. if your thinking about something other than what you're trying to depict you're not really there. give what you are doing your full attention. do each step thoroughly and completely before moving on.
- don't be too attached to the outcome. a tricky one because you always, always want to do your best but solving the task at hand will get you there. this isn't an excuse to do bad work by the way. like i said, tricky.
