ART/VIDEOS – Becoming a Professional Artist Part 01: What to Learn

Becoming a Professiona Artist Part 01

  • How did you go about honing your skills as an artist? (Were you mentored? Self-taught?)
  • Practice is often regarded as the most important part of improving artistic ability. What was your preferred method/s of practice? What did you find to be the most effective method/s?
  • What would you consider to be the most important skill/s to understand and hone? (for example: perspective, line work, composition, form, value and shadows etc.)
  • How much time did you invest into your training on a daily or weekly basis?

In this video I answer these questions.

An art student recently contacted me and asked me these questions about becoming a professional.  I recorded my answers on my iPhone and sent them to him.  Then I realized other people might benefit from listening to my responses.

I’ve decided to make videos from the recordings. I hope you find my answers helpful:
