This is a project I started almost a year ago, but which soon stalled. I'm back to actively working on recreating one of the paintings in the series, Piazzo San Marco, by the artist Giovanni Antonio Canal.
This is a permanent post--I will update it occasionally. Some aspects of being an artist, and improving as an artist are difficult: it requires skill, creativity, passion and vision. Progress generally involve hard work and there are seldom short-cuts. But other aspects are primarily a matter of organization and discipline. If you reduce your 'wasted' time, you'll have more time to devote to the time-intensive activities. The list below is where I usually find myself wasting time, causing a 2-hour project to turn into a 2-day project.
