When I joined TVI, i bought byself a number of A5 sketch pads.
Now I find my brain scrambles when I look at or consider using a surface bigger than that.
I’ll get over it, I’m sure - but was wondering if anyone had any other silly/funny/traumatic tales of art?
Does your white Polychromos bring out the sweats, or the thought of unboxing those pastels give you the shakes?
I’m hoping you get an answer…
I’m a n00b who feels rather similarly about big pictures. somehow- the size is daunting…
but why is that exactly? idk- but I can vouch for the feeling.
also-this makes me want to try it. (we’re supposed to do stuff that seems difficult,right?)
Yes, doing difficult is the way forward!
I keep telling myself that… but…
There is a way of getting over this fear of doing larger pictures. Scenery, for instance, think of it as something you can see on a stage. Break it down into Background, Middle ground, and Foreground. This way your mind set could be that you are dealing with 3 subjects so you only worry about one at a time. I am sure it must be the same for portraits, vases of flowers, anything really.
