I have a habit when I’m painting-I start as soon as I pick up a piece of paper, and I never pay any attention to its size. But I sometimes make exceptions. I let my students use some paintings as models, and they have to be cut to certain specifications. It’s easy for me to keep them and take care of them.
Because these paintings need to have unified specifications, I make a few backups when I am cutting large amounts of paper.
This small painting is one of these standard models. I can pull out a backup piece of blank paper, pick up a brush, take a few strokes, and compose a painting. It doesn’t matter whether it’s good or bad, or whether it’s a successful painting or not, but I always do some painting every day. I consider this my responsibility; I don’t want to stay idle and waste each day.
My students often ask me: “Where do you get the inspiration for so many paintings with different compositions?” I honestly answer them: “I paint a lot, so I naturally have many paintings.”
Friends, pick up brush and paper, and start painting! ＠
