Using Design to Make Better Art [227]

Apple podcast


Can you design a better painting? This week we answer a listener question about how we use design in our paintings, including the use of line. As we discuss the benefits or constraints of an informed academic approach vs intuition Alice draws on her graphic design background and perhaps the dangers of ‘getting it right’ too soon. As you look at your own work, what stands out to you? We’ll all have our own preferences and ways to draw attention and bring clarity.

And we share some honest truths about procrastination – come on – we all have our perfect guilty waste of time!
