The Blank Canvas...


What is it about a blank canvas that sends shivers down artists' spines?
It does to me at least. I had a chat with a fellow artist yesterday about this phenomenon and she shared the same sort of dread that I do in approaching a white blank canvas.
Why is it so intimidating? 
For me, its about making that "first mark", I want it to be "right", "perfect"; sometimes it about "committing to something"  and will that be "okay". 
I could go on and on but I won't bore you-
Have any of you felt this way before? What are your thoughts on "the blank canvas"? What is your approach?
Bye for now.


  1. I've found painting the white canvas a different colour a good way to start

  2. Thanks Tim, I will keep that in mind...
