The Importance of Not Over Analyzing

Do you ever find yourself horribly frustrated during painting? 

 

It might be that you're trying two very different ways of thinking at the same time. Part of your brain is trying to get into the zone and just paint. Meanwhile, the other part of your brain is yelling at you to go this way or that way. "No left! I said left!"

Jacqueline Sullivan said it best. Creating and analyzing are two separate brain functions. Each is important. But they can often work terribly together. Jacqueline's advice is to try and give yourself for painting without judgment. And then when you need to, pause and assess. 

 

That way you get the benefits of both these forms of thinking...instead of just giving yourself a headache. 

 

How do you handle these two modes in your painting process? We'd love to hear your experience below!
