The Power of Critiques

Todays blog is more of a reflection on a critique I had in NYC. It was incredibly insightful yet blunt. Heartbreaking in the sense that I noticed things that I hadn’t before. I see so many issues with my artwork now but I know this critique has helped me move forward to make my illustrations into much stronger and consistent portfolio pieces. The Illustration in this blog shows a few of my issues. I reused an old idea, made a beautiful food painting on top of a not so detailed or skilled painting. There seems to be a great unbalance with the things I paint and draw. Im proud with how far ive come with color but notice I need lighter colors or more empty spaces to even things out.

 Thankfully I had time to stop by Blick Art supplies in manhattan so I could grab two beautiful, new sketchbooks to help improve my drawing skills on non food items.
