Hi! Welcome to today's blog article where I talk about how you can evaluate, consider, and develop your artwork. To begin talking about how to evaluate art in general, you must first have a strong understanding of how to talk about the elements and principles of art and design. Once you can break apart a painting into its core elements and principles, you can critique it alone or in a group and ensure everyone else understands exactly what you're talking about. It also allows you to simplify a potentially complicated image to evaluate the core purpose or message within the art and help edit out the distracting elements. This content is necessary to maximize a work of art's impact and make it stand out in a room filled with competition.
These are the elements and principles of art and design. They are an objective and measurable means of categorizing your work, to justify whether or not a work of art is complete, and helps the artist evaluate what needs to be done throughout the process of making. This knowledge offers a vocabulary to describe and discuss a non-representational work of art that otherwise lacks description.
Ultimately the most important question to answer is this: "Is this painting satisfying to you?" If it is, Great! You're finished! If it is not satisfying to you first, then it is not finished.
"What is the intention of your painting?" Does this work of art fulfill its mission? How can you make alterations to your painting to maximize your work to become a more effective. No two paintings serve the exact same mission. Some intend to offer peace and tranquility, others intend to inspire action, and others intend to sink back into the background like an accessory to a space. There is no wrong intention for a painting, only effective and ineffective executions. I hope you enjoy watching my video!
