Back to Painting
Yesterday, I started a Creative Figure class at Andy Braitman's Studio. Andy is so great! He's a wonderful teacher and cheerleader. He is also good about giving content-specific feedback. He's encouraging us to try new techniques and to be creative. I think I'm ready for this!
The painting above is one I finished today at my studio. I have a new strategy. I am going to try to finish a painting a day - either one that I started previously or a new one. I've been reading a lot about learning through making mistakes. I also read an article where an art teacher said that she encourages her newer (like me) students to finish a painting in three hours - to work on quantity as much or more than on quality. This sounds like a good idea for me right now. I tend to work and work and overwork and overwork paintings. So, I'll blog about how this goes!
