Lessons From the Move: Settling In, Getting Centered

by Luann Udell on 10/9/2014 6:28:28 AM
12 Comments

But in hindsight, I should have created a mini-version of my studio. Perhaps made my own project kits that could be set up in even a stripped-down environment. For 2-D artists, perhaps a sketchbook, one of those wooden artist paint boxes, even a camera or smartphone to capture lovely photos to work up later, would be enough to “keep your hand in”—and your soul grounded—during this time.

I Love Starting... I Love Finishing... What About the Middle?

by Doug Hoppes on 9/30/2014 7:08:25 AM
12 Comments

Now, this is not to say that I finish all of the paintings that I start. There are some that I started too quickly without thinking about the composition. Those paintings are really doomed from the start. I don’t mind giving up on those. That just teaches me that I need to think more about the composition and the painting before I actually start the painting phase. [...]
