Rufus Wants to Steal Your Balance
Rufus is the snooty, know it all, art critic that lives inside the mind of every artist.
You must only paint your lessons.
Don’t deviate from the lessons.
The lessons are the most important thing.
Yet another tactic Rufus employs to crush your artistic aspirations.
🛑 Do not paint your lessons simply out of duty.
If you only ever paint the lessons, it becomes like reading a dull but recommended text. Before you know it, you’re avoiding the lessons because you dread what you should do because it’s not what you want to do.
✅ Instead, take a break from time to time (I do this about once a month). Paint what intrigues you. Explore a style that interests you. Experiment with color.
Take time to explore the mystery without worrying about mastery.
The mystery will draw you in, lead you on, and keep you progressing with your Photoshop painting skills.
Painting lessons out of duty for an extended time will numb you out and turn you off to the entire process.
Rufus knows this.
Rufus wants this.
Don’t let Rufus convince you not to have balance in your painting endeavors. Both mystery and mastery are equally important!
