I wanted to write this post for those of your who think you don’t like your artwork and I know that there are several of you. I would like to offer some advice and guidance to help because I understand these feelings. Every term I meet a few learners who don’t like and even hate the work they produce.
Our Own Worst Critics
Firstly why don’t you like your work? Often it because we are judging it very harshly we don’t think it is good enough or we are comparing it with others work. I had one learner who shocked me with a very accomplished portrait which I honestly didn’t think she was capable of producing after the first session of the course.
I was amazed by how much progress she had made after ten weeks of classes. Sadly she didn’t see the progress and achievements herself, she only saw the mistakes and only spoke to me about what was ‘wrong’ with her art.
