getting ready for a project
I have not gotten butterflies for many many years. What I need is to get the right feeling to start something. Even a paid job I need to get in the frame of mind to paint or do an extensive restoration on a piece. Same way with gilding, repairing a 600 year old statue or any thing that requires concentration. I will usually put the piece out to look at for a few days to get a look at it as I walk by which gets me thinking of the approach to take in restoring or attacking a job. For drawing or painting that is not just a out of the head drawing I set the pic's up and do the same. Even thought I have concurred the ADD factor with Med's Dose not mean I still do not have 10-15 projects rambling around in the head LOL it's comes down to with one beats me up the most to jump out and work.
So when your wanting to do something, how do you go about planning ar preparing for the job of project?
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
