Failed Artwork is not a Waste

While you think ” No! That’s not what I wanted to make”

Take a while and look at it.

Where did it get wrong? Why is it not the way you wanted to be? Why is it looking different or not as to what you like it?

That failed artwork ( or anything you wish you were doing, assignment etc) is actually not a failure or a waste!

It’s Never a Failure

“Failure is a success in process”

That work gives you a lesson which tells you to improve.

It gives you the opportunity for you to know where you got wrong and which step/ technique (whether it’s proportion or shading) to improve.

Failed work is not a waste.

It’s an experience, it gives you a record that you made a mistake here and you have to work on it a lot till you achieve that and you don’t make that mistake again.

Don’t throw it away. Keep that with you and see what you did wrong and where you have to improve.

This is the thing which I keep in my mind when I get frustrated about an artwork which doesn’t look like what I thought it would.

I know that frustration when an artwork is not up to the mark and you feel like throwing it.

But that will not improve you. Keeping it as a record and observing where you went wrong and improving it will improve you and make you better.

So, don’t get disappointed.

“Failure is not opposite of success, it’s a part of success”

What is Success?

Success is knowing your mistakes and improving so you get better and better.

Success is getting better, Success is when you achieve your dreams, Success is when you make an artwork just like you wanted it to be.

“Failure is a lesson learned, Success is a lesson applied

———————–♥—-–——————–

So, keep faith , believe in yourself, and always be confident!

Enjoy your day Readers! ☺

Challenging & Improving through Art

Many people work in the field of logical reasoning, analytic skills, financial fields.

This logical reasoning and and analytic calculation activate only your right side of your brain.

Rest your Right Side of your Brain

Taking a break from using your right side of your brain, rest it and perform art to activate the left side. This will balance the use of both sides of brain and help activitate the creative side.

Challenge Yourself

For artists, you should challenge yourself by trying new mediums, trying different strokes and methods, create your own idea of art, like picasso introduced “cubism”. It was his own style of painting and sketching.

Analytics and Art

Along with analytics, art and creativity is also important for a human being, waking the left side is also important, otherwise your left side will not work after some point of time.

Benefits for mental health

Suprisingly, it also helps in improving mental health, some one suffering from anxiety and stress (about what I mentioned in this post) can improve their mental health by drawing or doing any thing creative. It will distract your mind and help develop and improve creative skills.

So, this has a lot of benefits if someone tries.

From relieving stress to developing creative skills, art is for that!

Even singing and specially dancing can improve mental health and develop creative skills.

So Go for it!

Get yourself an Art dose, join an art class just as a hobby (if you wish too) or do something at home.

Work. Create. Enjoy

Have a great day readers!!☺
