Three questions artists should probably never ask [72]

what art materials should I choose
Apple podcast

This week, we share 3 of the questions that we are most often asked, and discuss why they’re really not helpful.

Often, especially when we are starting out or when we are switching to a new medium, we ask questions as a kind of shortcut … it feels easier to ask than to work it out for ourselves… “tell me what you use”.

Question 2 is around how to find your approach to making abstract work and Question 3 is a money one! But the truth is that the answers to these questions are unique for each of us. Only you can find the answer that works for you. That said, we do have some suggestions that we hope are helpful and will prompt your own thinking.

This week we are also moving back to working on larger paintings, which feels really good, and we are both working hard on our membership groups. As an added bonus, you get my lockdown TV recommendations!
