However, my goal is still to work on each of the 4 stages of development daily. Devoting a scheduled amount of time each day to each stage in order to move forward towards the goal of completing one painting a week is great motivation and does yield results. ( my days of engineering haven't washed out of me yet , I guess).
Here are the 4 stages:
Stage 1 - Come up with an idea. The calendar sets the priority. In other words, what is the next deadline? ( Show, gallery pieces, competition, just for fun...)
Stage 2 - Complete a transfer and under painting. Develop the previous week's idea into a composition and transfer the drawing to canvas.
Stage 3 - Complete painting to 80%. (from last week's transfer).
Stage 4 - Complete the painting. (From the previous week's 80%).
