Be Fearless

This quote is very fitting for me this week.

I am experimenting with different media and trying to exercise my art more frequently. I have been out of practice for awhile and so the fear tends to set in. I can’t draw, it has been too long. I only have 20 minutes, my art can’t possibly look decent in 20 minutes. What is my art “style?” Every artist needs a “style.”

Taking some classes on skillshare has been helpful. It is easier to take some pressure off if I am practicing as a “student.” The more that I draw and practice, the more fun I have. I am getting more comfortable and confident. I am learning everyday. The more I practice the better I will get.

So here I am becoming fearless. I don’t need to know what my “style” is right this minute. I can just make art everyday and maybe I will notice a reoccurring theme. My style will come. But one thing I know for sure, art sets my soul on fire.

What sets your soul on fire?

Classes and Exploration

So this week I have been focusing on practicing skills and techniques that are not in my wheelhouse. I have been playing with watercolor and drawing in ink. It has been wonderful! I am trying to work on being more relaxed, playful and whimsical rather than uptight and perfectionistic. Some of these still need some practice but I am really happy with how they came out!

If you are interested in some of the classes I am enrolled in, let me know. I am currently using SkillShare. I believe they are still having a discount on there premium membership, 3 months of Premium for $0.99.
