While my mother is working on new jewellery tutorials, I have browsed through some old pictures I could possibly share with you.
Both of us are pretty busy right now, but we still want to keep connected to you and not disappear somewhere in the abyss of the world-wide web ;)
And you are lucky, I did find some great pictures.
I don’t know how this works for you, but I usually get inspired when I see great pictures or crafts from others, it makes me itchy and I can’t wait to start a piece for myself.
This three paintings I will show you today, stand for the 3 Art principles which will make you go from average to a great artist and they also stand for my biggest challenges.
- DARE TO GO BIG
The first and most important Rule of Art is that you have to be brave (How scary can it be to go big, or small, detailed or modern suddenly). You have to accept the challenge and ask the impossible of yourself. You have to go all the way and accept imperfections for the greater good. Focus on the whole picture and don’t get hung up over the details…it is art, let it flow and never be scared^^
- TRY OUT NEW TOOLS AND NEVER LOSE YOUR CURIOSITY
Try out new techniques and methods. Don’t get stuck to what you know. Art is all about discovering and inventions. Use whatever you can get in your hands and never stop learning. Let your creativity lead you! Some stuff you will love, other things not so much…but this way you maybe are going to discover some hidden talents ;)… it is Art, discover it!
- EMBRACE WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT AND TAKE IT TO A NEW LEVEL
The last thing I want to give you on the way. If you found something that you are totally good at and that suit your needs and wants. Something you really enjoy doing. Come back to it from time to time, don’t forget about it. Embrace it and enjoy it and try to make it your own. From trying out new techniques from others, go and make your own. Try to make it perfect…Not perfect in the common sense, but perfect for you ;)...it is Art, remember and love what you are good at.
