Comment progresser...

Tiré du site art news blog.

«In Robert Genn's latest newsletter he is talking about personal coaches and the value that artists could gain from them. He isn't about to become a personal coach himself, but he has made a list of things that an artist could do to make progress.

Here's the full newsletter and here's his list (I hope he doesn't mind me posting it)..

* Find a sanctuary where you can comfortably work.
* Dedicate at least two hours a day to your art.
* Have more than enough equipment and
* Set short- and long-term goals and keep track of progress.
* Think of your work as exercise, not championship play.
* Explore series development and exhaust personal themes.
* Work alone with the benefit of books and perhaps tapes.
* Replace passive consumption with creative production.
* Use your own intuition and master your technology.
* Feel the joy of personal, self-generated sweat.
* Fall in love with your own working processes.
* Be forever on the lookout for the advent of style.
* Try to be your own person and claim your rights.
* Don't bother setting yourself up for rejection.
* Don't swing too wildly and damage the well-being of others.
* Don't jump into the ring until you're feeling fit.

Robert is a Canadian landscape painter and also publishes the newsletter The Painter's keystwice each week. His paintings can be seen on his website here
