Here's a peek at my morning's work today.
I am trying to just be working.
One of the things I am constantly telling my students is that not every thing you do has to be a masterpiece. None of the great artists just produced high art every time they touched a brush. They all did a lot of learning in sketchbooks and personal papers. To be a good artist, you need to remember this and concentrate on the learning process rather than the final masterpiece.
Often people see me just draw or sketch with out any practice, but behind that there are pages and years of practice. I do not believe art is something that is an innate talent, instead, it is something that is learnt and like any skill - if you love it then you will practice and learn and improve. It is no different to, say embroidery or sewing. Why should it be?
