Giving criticism to art journals and mixed media art is not easy. The work is very personal and many of us didn't go to art-school, so were not used to giving and receiving feedback to our art.
I did go to art school and I truly believe that criticism is the only way to become better at what we do, even though sometimes it may be harsh. If you only hear how "nice" and "beautiful" your work is, you might get stuck in the same mannerisms, without improvement of your work. On forums I often see how much people 'love' something, but rarely they dare to write what they would do differently.
- Are you an Art Journaller or Mixed Media Artist?
- Do you wish to improve your work?
- Would you like to get published on my blog and receive constructive feedback on your work?
Yes? Then send me 1 .jpg of your own artwork to info [at] bloknote.nl or reply on this blog message with a link to 1 picture of you own artwork.
In one of the next weeks I will publish a number of entries with the constructive criticism, so that both you and other mixed media artists can learn from it. So you will not only help yourself, you will also help others to learn something new.
I promiss: I will be polite and positive, but honest! ;-)
I'm really looking forward to hear from you.
