New series on creativity challenges

I'm starting this series on youtube to help fellow artists. I'll be trying to show how I overcome the challenges that I face constantly in my painting practice. It's mostly oriented towards oil painters - imressionism, Russian school, traditional academy practices, plein air...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozcttrDZMKM

Let me know what you think. I want to make it really useful.

Stefan

WT* ??! LOL! That is a hell of a lot funnier that I was expecting. I suggest everyone take a look, whether any of the actual advice ends up being any use at all.

Interesting. Not my medium but the first episode made a really good point I'm familiar with - work on something else before coming back to critique. It helps a lot in any medium.

I really enjoyed the video, I'm not an oil painter but found the vid pertinent to other mediums as well. I like your sense of humour

Thank you so much, bvanevery! I thought nobody saw my post, so I stopped checking for replies. You made my day.

Thank you, Robert! I often forget to do that, so I included this advice to remind myself of it. I'm glad it resonates.

It takes a desperate disciplinarian with time on his hands, to go backwards through older posts looking for stuff. But found it I did. I'm glad to have brought it forwards to other people's attention. I've watched 2 of your videos at this point, can't remember if I started the 3rd, but they're all well done.

Re: New series on creativity challenges

I am up to video #3 now. The idea of painting a subject you don't like, but in the way that you like, is food for thought.

On the other hand, the subject I intend to paint next is not extant in the physical world. It is abstract, and has existed in my mind for decades. It is 3-dimensional however. It is clouds, green and white mists, colors, landscapes, and orange structural shapes. The latter are reminiscent of large steel sculptures I've actually seen.

If that is "what I like", it might be amusing to wrap any real world object in that sort of thing.

Thank you Brian, that was so nice of you!

Sounds great, maybe you'll find clues to it in the physical world. I'm curious to see that project realized.

The new episode is about procrastination (sort of) -

The creativity forum can be a little quiet sometimes. sporadic.

I sometimes subscribe to threads I want to keep track of - you might want to consider the option sometimes as well.
Easily done with a click or two.

Re: New series on creativity challenges

I believe subscription to threads is automatic if you post them or reply in them, unless you change the default options. I also think the default is to be notified by email. At any rate if these are not one's settings, they can be made so.

Re: New series on creativity challenges

you must get a lot of emails, bv. if you subscribe to a thread you get an email anytime anyone posts on it.

the default is not auto subscribe, it's very optional
