What does it take to get your creative juices flowing? Can timing yourself creating your art actually increase your motivation to finish the project? Artist Mark Crilley has devised a challenge for other artists in order to get them drawing. The challenge is simple: draw the same image three times. The catch is that the artist has to draw three sketches in the following timed order: 10 seconds for the first image, one minute for the second image and ten minutes for the third image.
Mark encourages artists to post their three drawings side by side to detail their progress. Their results are absolutely stunning. The message behind the project is also incredibly powerful: everything starts small.
What is that famous quote about getting started? “The journey of a million miles begins with a single step.” What this project shows is that in order to draw a masterpiece, you have to begin with a single stroke.
