Lesson 7 – December 25: Changing the Process

December 31, 2022

Over break, I have pushed myself to spend more time working on creating new, well-planned paintings. I usually just dive in blind, with nothing to guide me other than (maybe) a color palette picked out. Sketching a draft for each painting before turning to the canvas has allowed me to implement more elements into my art; I can enhance the meaning behind my paintings by planning more thoughtful symbolism. 

My goal is to always convey raw emotion, and, for a long period of time, I thought sketching before painting would inhibit that process. Turns out it did the opposite for me. Creativity is very individual, so I understand how this might not be the most relatable thing to discuss. All I can tell you is this: even if you are happy with your art, music, etc it never hurts to implement something new into your process. You could love it or you could hate it, but regardless you will improve through the trial and error of trying something new.
