Hi all, after watching Mark's videos and signing up to this forum a while ago I thought that I'd be posting regularly and making progress with my paintings. However, the main issue I'm having with with my own patience! After feeling that I definitely wanted to commit to learning Mark's method fully without cutting corners I found myself getting frustrated and taking short cuts. I went away from the DMP method and have been very unhappy with my paintings.
I started lacking confidence that I could learn the method and wanted instant results. I've had a good talk to myself and now I'm back on track. I'm going to stick to this method fully until I master it. I watched some videos again and started to feel all fired up. Then yesterday I started a painting and once again was being a bit lazy with the technique. Today I'm going to try to be far more disciplined. I know though that I'm going to be struggling against myself. It's crazy because I want to learn this technique more than anything but then I sit down to paint and patience is still an issue.
Has anyone else struggled against themselves in this way? And have you managed to overcome it - to increase your patience and discipline? Any tips?
