In the beginning ...
I've been thinking lately that I spend way too much time on the internet. Checking out other artists work, checking my e-mails, reading blogs etc. Anything but create, and because of that I've decided that I'm going to take a summer hiatus from the internet.
I want to develop my own personal style and checking out all the blogs I notice that so many of the artists work is beginning to look the same to me. I'm not sure if that is because they have all studied from the same awesome artist or, my familiarity with the work, ... well, I don't' know why. But, I want to develop my own style and need to get more painting behind me & not be influenced by one artists style for the time being. That, for me, means staying off the internet ...
Since I've been sharing my sketchbooks with youI want to:
- Do more sketching, and
- I'm loving my experience with oils and I definately want to do more oils, especially plein air painting.
- Focus on my work and not the internet.
I have a few more Art of the Sketchbook posts scheduled for Fridays and then they will also take an internet break.
Until then keep on being creative ...
