The Work of Art
I think one of the biggest challenges in art is not making the image but being
the person that makes the image. What a lot of people don’t get to understand is
that to do a portrait, even if it’s just straight copy from life.
Which i believe is one of the most profound and fun ways to practice art. Because all of your colors are given to you right there, on the shape are three dimensions so that we can look around the corners and see exactly what’s causing the shadow.
But to be able to sit in one spot, to look at one thing, to examine how light bounces off of it, how color is created, how shadows and shapes form, to understand it, and thats and inanimate object.
