THE ULTIMATE DRAWING 
AND PAINTING TIP

By George Allen Durkee


 

The challenge is to be fully present - to sustain the dreamlike space where inspired work can take place. To describe this state is to try to put it in a box, as though it could be saved and used again later. What takes the lid off your creativity cannot be grasped and held with words. 

Slip into that half state, allowing your eye and hand to do the work. Engage as an observer participant. The ART of art is in the experience of engaging the creative process. 

What do you think about while you work?  

Your internal dialog is one of the most important determinants of how clearly your work expresses you. Being fully present is the absolutely essential part of painting not usually talked about. Shut up and paint!
