How do you grow as a painter?

First, I can say, it’s a solitary path.

What do I mean? I mean, we are alone in our work as painters. It’s a private journey, that can’t escape its source from within. The source is who we are. We must be mindful to this fact. It is where we find ourselves at any given time. This is the beginning of our work to grow as painters.

Are there practical habits that can help us to grow?

The number one thing you must do is:

Set aside a time every day. It should be at least an hour, preferably a lot more. Include weekends and statutory holidays.

This may be the best place to begin. What can you do to mature as a painter in a practical sense? Practice drawing from a live model and still life as often as you can- weekly if possible, daily is even better.
