When I paint, I never think of (― Edvard Munch)

Drawing Time: 20min Daily:)

When I paint, I never think of selling. People fail to understand that we paint in order to experiment and to develop ourselves as we strive for greater heights.

― Edvard Munch

  • MEET UP - Don’t forget 3D. When you draw from a printed or screen reference, the subject is obviously already 2d. When you draw from life, its up to you to convert a 3d subject onto a 2d substrate. There is a skill here that shouldn’t be overlooked. Check meetup.com to find life drawing groups in your area. I guarantee your skills will benefit from drawing from life. Be modest and patient in your expectations of yourself, and trust that its a path to growth.
