When someone takes a class through Oi Painting DVD course this is the hand out I give them to get a little direction in where they want to go.
Artist development worksheet
1. What type of technique do you want to develop?
2. What artists do you want to paint like and why?
If possible answer this in terms of “I like artist A for her use of color, I like artist B’s subject matter etc.
Try to answer this in terms of drawing, color, value, edges, paint application, drawing and subject matter.
3. With questions #1 & #2 in mind, what do you think are your weak areas?
4. What is your vision of Ideal Art?
Take a little time and go through this process to determine where you really want to go.
