The 40/60 Rule



The 40/60 rule is a simple guideline I use when creating art. It means that I use 40% of my time to plan out the piece of art. The remaining 60% is pure inspiration. We can get bogged down in the planning of our art, or exactly the opposite, we do not devote enough time to the planning.

By using the 40/60 rule it allows me to consider the planning of a piece of art without losing that crucial spontaneous inspiration necessary for the creation of great art.

New artists can get bogged down in the process of art. So much so that they lose their inspiration. By applying the 40/60 rule they can eliminate many of the small problems that creep into the art process while at the same time maintaining the all important inspiration that drives us all.

DON'T LOSE YOUR INSPIRATION!
