There are 3 signs that I see over and over again that are a sure fire indicator that it’s time to start a daily painting practice.
1. The first is not making time to paint because of being overwhelmed by an already full schedule.
2. The second is feeling trapped in the details and the idea of perfection.
3. And the third is when an artist’s work looks like it’s been painted by 10 different people. There’s no consistent style.
So what’s the magic bullet?
The answer to all three lies in a relatively simple practice – painting every day.
Painting for 20-30 minutes a day can make a huge difference.
1. Your work improves
2. You stay motivated because ideas flow easily
3. Small daily steps move you closer to your goals
4. Muscle memory takes over and the difficult things become easier
5. You paint faster with more ease
6. You paint more intuitively and responsively rather than consciously
7. Your own personal style will develop without your even having to thing about it
