Tip of the Week: Visualizing

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 31, 2012, 2:42 AM
When you visualize the task before you do it, it makes it that much easier to accomplish and accomplished better. Especially for drawing and painting. Before I work on a film, I take about 10 or 20 minutes staring at something dark or close my eyes to try and visualize the movie before I start painting.
I believe that visualizing is the hardest and most powerful way to think. With conscious and persistent practice you can improve your ability to visualize.

See you soon Sao Paulo!… <--SP workshop!

Sending positive vibes to you all!

I only do this on a very small scale. I'll take your advice to heart. With practice, this sounds powerful!

Its funny but that can be really effective. I remember trying something similar to that at life drawing once, but with visualising the pose on the page and how I was going to draw, got some good results :)
Thanks! I don't usually visualize, I just let my hands go across the page, but I'm going to give this a try. :)

I think I have a natural ability for visualizing, though it works better for certain things -objects, details, faces- and worse for others; I'm terrible at visualizing large scenes and compositions, for example. But it's something I keep practising and trying to improve.
