  1. I’ve tried to teach that to students in a limited sense. One week of drawing the same still life and comparing the last one to the first. I think some of them would have happily shot me, they got sick of it fast.

  2. Oh god I used to be one of those art students. I can understand how they must feel. Now that I’m older and much more wiser I see the value in repetition. Drawing is very akin to learning to write especially when one is learning to write the individual letters of the alphabet.

    Maybe I’ll design and illustrate an ABC book. “A” for apple, “B” for bong,

    haha. Seriously though I might dare myself to do that and actually complete it.

  3. lol I think that’s the best advice ever.

    i think most of us just want to get it right the first time! and would get frustrated by the 13th time (who am i kidding, we’ll move onto something else after the 2nd, or call it abstract =)
