One time somebody told me something at my studio. I am not talking crap because I am trying this whole positive thing but hey I got to talk about something. But anyways he told me that I should use a projector. He told me that when he was in art school he spent all of this time working on painting and the teacher came by and said it’s abvious you know how to draw now why don’t you use a projector to get you through the drawing phase faster.
I think the projector can work but not on my style ., let me explain!. When new artist try to draw lets say a human body they tend to want to simplify everything. They want to make the body with straight lines when the human body there is not a single straight line on it. When an artist is drawing the curves of a body he is constantly fighting his mind. The mind wants to simplify everything. The challenge is telling your mind it is wrong and disassibling the image and breaking the codes of your mind. Drawing is a mind workout. I think with my style and personality I like error. I like it when I discover the drawing was all out of wack and I like finding the solutions to these porportion problems. I also like leaving cleus of where I messed up or turning a mess up into a motion or a background. I think error shows are humanity and that is what I am trying to paint. To use a projector goes against everything I believe in. OK so this is a negative thought and I dont and should not say it but I can’t help it and hey at least I am telling it to my blog and not actual people. It almost like telling it to my diary right……Yeh no harm in that…… Except not at all because the whole point of a diary is that nobody is going to read it but you and therefore if somebody does read it and gets offended they should of not red it in the first place. However I feel like everybody secretly wants people to read there diary….Oh back to that negative thought. Before I use a negative thought I will start it with a positive one. There are some very good murals in my neighborhood…That was the positive thought….Now the negative, and it is weird how my heart starts racing when something makes me mad. Certain things just rock my core and I get all worked up about them. Well I don’t need to say it I, I don’t need to get all worked up. I am going to leave it at that….There are some really good murals in my neighborhood….And it is the truth there are and I should focus on them not…Ahhh Self Blog therapy
