Hannah More, an English poet, playwright and philanthropist said, “Goals help you overcome short-term problems.” To overcome short-term problems in painting: (1) Draw thumbnail sketches. (2) Work out your color palette on w/c paper for this painting. Limit yourself to four or five primary colors.  (3) Save this limited palette for future reference with the names of the pigments written by the color swatch. (4) In your head, work out the mechanics of how you want to paint your selected subject matter. (5) Put you drawing on tracing paper. (6) Always save your tracings to use parts in future paintings. (7) Go for it! With these steps -- “Goals" -- you will succeed!
