Last weekend, I went to Seattle to take an Urban Sketching workshop, Line to Color. Classes in the craft of art or writing can give us a lot to work on in our art.
As I took notes, some of the lessons in drawing appeared to me as life lessons too. These truisms could be considered in our overall creative process.
Here are five things that my teacher Frank Ching said about drawing that I can easily apply to life and art making:
1. Choose what to focus on.
2. Ask: what’s my bias?
3. Don’t let your mind trick you.
4. Ask: how do you see relationships?
5. Enjoy the process.
What do you think? Do you see these as true for your life as well as your art? Tell us which of these is most resonant for you in a comment below.
