I'm almost finished with my 6th piece in the new body of work. I feel like I need to pat myself on the back for ten minutes and give myself a hug. It's not easy to get your focus on after working a 7-4 job that requires a full day of standing. But I'm doing it.
I've finally found a good work routine. I create two drawings. I pick one and work out all the compositional kinks and get it ready to paint. While I paint that piece I go back to the other drawing and work out it's kinks...that way I don't get too bored painting and have multiple puzzles to solve. It's a pretty great plan, it ensures that I always have something to work on and that there isn't any lag time.
