NO PORTRAITURE ON JULY 2nd !
“A work is finished when an artist realizes his intentions.” Rembrandt

What story do you want your work tell? Do you sit down to paint or draw
without knowing where you are going? It is not uncommon for artists to rush to start painting, without taking the necessary steps to plan their work. What do you want your art to say? What story are you inviting your viewers to be part of? What time of day is it? Where is  the sun? How do you accomplish showing distance? Do you do a few value studies? The more you take the time to plan, the better your end result will be. Trying to correct your art midway, is more difficult than planning it out in advance.

In my training with Tom Lynch, he always stressed value studies. And how
focusing on your lights and darks make your work pop! Think about your
focal point…does your eye move right to it? Do you have strong contrast
there, possibly brighter colors?

Take your time to plan…and better yet…know when you are done! Be careful not to overwork!
