Yesterday’s painting session was disappointing, but the day wasn’t a complete loss. I learnt some lessons – big things and little things. The little things are mostly things I already knew, but they came around and smacked me in the head because I was ignoring them!
• Turn off facebook/twitter before I enter the studio. I am loving social media for feeling connected and sharing what I am up to in real time, but I need to focus (that goes for the little ding on outlook too – the email will still be there when I am finished!)
• As much as I love having a great playlist on the good stereo, the dodgy little radio in the studio keeps me focused and in the space
• I really like working with transparent colours and just don’t go for white mixed into colours
So these are the little things, I may need to print this list for my notice board so I don’t keep forgetting things I have already learnt! Stay tuned for some big ponderings….
