Tip File: Taking Note

The following is an excerpt from the December 2010 issue of The Artist’s Magazine, in an article titled “32 Insider Tips.”

Pauline Roche, two-time finalist in our Annual Art Competition, has this tip to share: “Sometimes when I step into my studio to continue working on a piece from the previous day, getting my thoughts back to where they were the day before can take a while. To help me get to work faster, at the end of a painting session I jot down a few notes about things I might be thinking about doing next (“soften edge of left arm” or “make background a bit more opaque”). Somehow, having a specific task or two gives me a kick start toward getting back into the flow of things.” —Pauline Roche
