If I want my Art to become more refined, more pleasing, more interesting I must coax a little pencil or paint brush into action.
Art and action are inseparable.
I was reminded of a pretty much universal objection to hitting the sketch book: “But I get tired of doing the same thing all the time.”
Well, then don’t. You’re not being forced into Art are you?
If I get bored I can
- switch from pencils and brushes to pens
- charcoal and newsprint
- draw with your “weak” hand
- try some new ways to lay down lines
just get going and make it like play.
Make a prompt list and stick with it all during the month.
Just keep going and you will be glad to see your progress. Punch through that boredom with switching out media and an attitude of playfulness.
Serious play. It’s the way…
