Overnight Success

"It takes twenty years to become an overnight success."
~ E. Cantor

"The idea that success can happen overnight is a myth. You have to work for it."

Even if you are creating art as a pleasant pastime or hobby, starting off with a beginning art foundation provides practical tools and understanding that can be used with any medium or subject. Being introduced to the "primary" rules about color, values and harmony, through learning to draw and really see, will give you a deeper level of  involvement, dexterity, and enjoyment. Because you had to learn to walk before you could run; it is the same in art; you have to learn the rules before you can break them. Just like in cooking, you have to learn how to read a recipe, work the equipment, select your cookware and utensils and gather your ingredients before you can cook a gourmet meal! 

"Artists get better by sharpening their skills or by acquiring new ones;
they get better by learning to work, and by learning from their work."
~ D. Bayles, T. Orland

Since I was on a roll after drawing every day in June, July and August
I signed up for another 30 Day Challenge, called the 30 Day Creative Gathering,
hosted by Sheila Delgado.
