Hello! I’m Romina and, I’m a self-taught painter. This time, I’m showing you how I trained to be consistent.
It is true that we paint, because we love it. And many other reasons. And we want to improve.
But practicing and learning sometimes is not fun. You can find many exercises in art books or art classes. But many of them are boring for some of us. I tried and gave up many times.
I needed something non-traditional and, last year, I found The 100-day project. This art project was created by Lindsay Jean Thomson. I’m not going to detail everything about this, but I left you a link to everything related.
In a simplified way, you must choose an artistic project, in which you will work for 100 days, every day. Your reasons can be many, as well as your objectives. Mine was to learn and practice. I wanted to learn to paint animals realistically.
I decided to do dog portraits. The dogs of the portraits were part of my family. By choosing these, I connect emotionally with the project.
The 100 day project is an annual event and gives you a specific start and end date. This way, you can make a plan.
In my opinion, it is an excellent way to put together a plan with a clear, achievable objective. You work hard for 100 days with a clear goal.
The next one starts on February 13 and, of course, I will participate. And you?
