“It’s good for us,” mother twig proclaimed. Besides that, the family needed to blow a little stink off. They gathered themselves up – a bundle of twigs with long spring legs – and strolled along on a cool, crisp morning.
So, do you create the story first or the art first? Yes, a chicken and egg question.
It goes both ways. With drawings I typically start with an image and as I draw, an idea for a story will be sparked. I’ll then add more detail as I go to support the story.
With paintings, I generally have an idea for a story or subject and paint from there. Doesn’t answer the chicken or the egg question very well, does it?
It does. Unlike nature, in art, cause and effect are fluid!
