What Attracts You to Art?
I'm beginning to get a certain comfort from starting my day with 10 minutes of ink painting. It sort of sets the mood for the rest day!
I've been looking around at art I admire, trying to decide what it is I like...have you ever done an exercise like that? It's been very profitable for me in the past. In fact, it helped me make the decision to move towards painting in oils. Ask yourself what it is that really draws you towards an artist's work. Then ask yourself what you don't prefer about it. You might just find some answers for yourself.
Let me know what you discover!
