It’s All About the Process [129]

The importance of process in making your art
Apple podcast


Last week’s conversation with David Mankin sparked a conversation about process, so this week, we’re sharing our processes and discussing our own ideas about, and approaches to, painting. As you might have guessed there are some differences!

How has your process in art-making developed? We think knowing what works for you is a vital piece of the artistic puzzle but we approach this differently. We cover the role of ideas in our art-making and discuss the assertion that all artists must know what they are exploring in their work. We also discuss whether inspiration comes externally or internally (or both) and the importance of reflection and thought in our work. Finally, we share the questions we are currently asking ourselves in order to move our work forward.
