Hey all ! figured i'd update.
After I finished the challenged I prepared to do a second 21 days of more studies of things i wanted to learn and keep a ball like that rolling. It didn't work out, after the 2nd day, i realized i wasn't learning or studying, just 'doing' which wasn't getting me anywhere
I decided to step back and adjust what I felt i needed. I'm currently studying still an hour each morning (at least) but its much more loose and realative to current projects. this approach has given me much more reserve and fuel to keep at it
I'm currently doing a master study related to a figure-central painting im finishing off. the figure has a similar pose and similar lighting to what i'm looking for.
its a bourguereau (i think thats how its spelled XD)
i'll post more about the piece im working on later this week and probably past that. the piece is something from an idea ive had sitting since 2015, and i want to create a big observation on it on how style and creativity change over time.
