Summer update: 2 things

1. Once again I have been away for far too long.  But I did learn something very important this semester. A Teacher of mine shared this parable with me:

There were 2 classes of art students.  The 1st class required the students to make 5 high quality paintings to get a good grade.  The 2nd class required the students to make the highest quantity of paintings that they could make to get a good grade. At the end of the semester, the best work of the students who had to produce a high quantity of paintings was better than the students who were required to produce 5 high quality paintings. That's because they learned more from doing shorter and faster imperfect paintings over 5 perfect paintings.

I love this parable because it illustrates a practical way to improve your skill as an artist. Whether you are studying form, perspective, lighting, ect. You would see more improvement by doing shorter, faster studies, than doing long near perfect studies. Not to say that longer practices aren’t important in your growth, for it is good to do them every now and again. But say on days where you are short on your time, it would be more beneficial  to do 7 drawings in 5 minutes over just one. Also this wonderful video by Sycra:…

2. So, for the summer I will set a goal to post practices 3 times a week. Hopefully I can break down my habit of being a perfectionist.
