How many times I need to remind myself of this as I sculpt. I think, 'no I am on a roll', and that I'll lose the momentum if I quit now. I then find out the next day things didn't look quite as good as I thought they did. I get so caught up in what I think I am creating that I don't step back and look at really what it is that I just put out there.
I am trying to do this process more now as I am finding out that fresh eyes are a better resource for seeing what I am actually doing, more than what tired eyes and hands are doing. So for my tip of the day...Take a break...Step back and enjoy the roses. This isn't only a tip for sculpting but for our lives, but then art is just that, a reflection of our lives.
Enjoy and Happy Easter.
