Which do you find helps most to improve your art? Focusing on quantity or focusing on quality?
I recently read about a study in which a pottery class was split in two groups. One group was assigned to produce as much pottery as possible and their grade was based on poundage. The other group was assigned to produce one perfect pot. According to the study, the poundage group produced some of the best pots.
Seems suspect to me!
On the other hand, there's the saying "Only perfect practice makes perfect!"
Mark's method is very exacting and I've learned a lot from trying to follow it. So, I tend to make each painting as perfect as possible within limits.
What are your thoughts?
