|Pencil Sketch of a blue heron with the guidelines left in.|
The other day I read Mary Byrom's blog and I thought it was worth sharing here.
"This past week I discovered that what I did everyday had a name…the process I go through day after day and week after week is called mastery. Wow, was that a surprise. I knew what I set out to do wasn’t easy but I didn’t know that I had so many kindred spirits out there on the same path doing the same process. Its great to encounter this. The four things I do in my painting process are 1. Practice 2. Persistence 3.Patience 4. Perseverance. 5. Repeat # s 1- 4 over and over."
You can read her whole post here and I recommend you do, it's well written and gives links to other artists. What she says about going to art school is relatable to almost everyone who's done it.
