“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
― Pablo Picasso
a friend of mine posted a piece she was working on for a class, and was told by her instructor she was too rigid, it looked too much like a photo “why bother drawing it if you could just take a picture of it”
to this professor, i’d like to show you ANY master’s work, and invite you to take your head out of your ass.
Artistic style is not taught, it is learned from studying and practicing. Once you master to recreate from life, understand the principles and elements of design, color theory, perspective and shading to the point you can recreate a near photo-realistic image, THEN you have reached a point to explore and be free with your art.
But telling someone they don’t have enough artistic expression is a completely asinine remark to tell someone in a class. Art class should teach artists the rigidity of their observations so that they may master them and ultimately learn to bend and break them.
