Talent and Failure

Sat Aug 23, 2014, 10:23 PM

Some say to create great art you require great talent, I don’t think this is particularly true, I think to create great art you need to be able to learn and endure after “failure”. After all, the majority of artists look at their work and see all that they did “wrong” and don’t see how they have improved. The great artists never used how “bad” their work is as an excuse to quit, they used it as an endeavor for improvement.  


Skill and a good visual eye can take years to develop and the frustration and impatience that stems from this often leads to artists “giving up” claiming they don’t have the “talent”. “Talent” or “success” is simply a mixture of motivation and practice. I don’t mean a couple of hours of practice I mean hundreds and hundreds of hours practicing, and even then you probably won’t be completely content with your work as your artistic goal will be ever extending beyond your immediate reach. A life of art is a life of learning and improving.


Michelangelo said, “A man paints with his brains and not with his hands”. With any medium it’s imperative that an artist understands basic art elements and principals. Understanding lighting, color, shape, value, space, balance, proportion, composition, texture, form, line, anatomy (and more) all create the foundations for an aesthetically good art. Any good artist will recommend understanding these basics before trying to successfully “break” these rules.


If you want to be better or faster as an artist hard work does pay off, it will take time and effort but persistence is the only talent an artist needs to be truly great.

Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
I am just a little Aussie girl who loves to be creative!
I’m a fully self taught artist who thoroughly enjoys the use of all mediums whether it be a computer, a camera, paints or clay!
All of my work is handcrafted from start to finish and comes purely from my own imagination.
My aim is to create semi realistic poseable mythical creatures and as I only started teaching myself how to make them a few months ago, I have a long way to go!.

It is my dream to one day make art my career and I know it is a silly big dream but if your going to dream, why not dream big :happybounce:
