|Always Paint a Series|
Never paint just one. It puts too much pressure on you ("It better be RIGHT!")
Instead... Think multiples of the same subject. Think variations on a theme.
*Classical Music is Variations on a Theme
*Monet Haystack Series - 28 Paintings
*Diebenkorn Ocean Park Series - 100s of Paintings
Each one does not become so precious, but instead is a sequence of studies, explorative paintings of the same subject over and over. Most professional painters I know paint multiples. It keeps me focused... for awhile.
Now paint 99 MORE - and I'll see you next week!
