Quality. Not quantity.
I was especially inspired to do this after studying the paintings of Anders Zorn, and watching just how often he created painting sketch upon painting sketch because he sought to determine what moments he wanted to keep” at a painting, and people that he wanted to leave out. Every one of these works is, to me personally, as magnificent as any finished commission or painting, and so I want to enter a more protracted procedure with my job and really play at the early stages rather than hurry to complete.
I would like to sketch a concept, play with color choices, and think it through — really enjoying (rather than dashing ) through the process.
Wow, was last year as tough for you as it had been for me? I felt unbalanced and a little bit as though I was living in a tornado (cue the flying obstacles to dodge like Dorothy did!) . When those feverish times occurred, I’d have to actually boil down my priorities to the essentials. Strangely, instead of attempting to do everything (and failing), I succeeded in clinging to what I was really committed to, but that was because I made choices and, againI didn’t try to do this much. If you are seeking to set the tone for the entire year and place some inventive New Year’s resolutions, then see if one of these ways I intend to give my imagination its since inspire you. Cheers to a happy and creative New Year!!

Another imaginative New Year’s resolution I am taking on is hoping to get savvy with my compositions. As a viewer, I’m soooo incredibly drawn to paintings which have striking compositions or arrangements of elements that surprise me.
The more considerate the decisions we make at this
In my style and in my house, there is color everywhere, however I tend to shrink away from attempting to layer on more complex colors when it comes to painting. Another of my creative New Year’s resolutions is to embrace the color I adore so much!
