This is not my routine approach to a painting. Prep drawings, yes. Hours of internet research? no. Life-size cut-outs? erm, no. What am I doing here?! I’m diving in to something new. Going deeper into a new place. Yes, it sometimes feels like I have NO IDEA where I’m at. But isn’t that the scary fun of the plunge?
So, how about you? Are you risking your routine? Changing the rhythm of your work to see what might happen? Let me encourage you to give it a try. Maybe it will underline what not to do. Maybe it will solidify your thinking about how your work progresses. Or, maybe it could add something altogether new and wonderful to your toolbox. Enjoy!
