Olivea: Bostonian🎻Jackiw had always wanted to date a super model.
Owen: @yoonahsclarinet is a 💋super model type, but I didn’t know he’s so shallow🙄!
Olivea: Yeah, that’s why I highlighted it for you! But what if she is a professional clarinet player who just happens to be hot🔥?
Owen: 🔥Sexy& spiritual✨? That’s evil👻. Totally💯.
DISCLAIMER🤪: The instrument @Yoonahsclarinet was playing in the selfie🤳🏼 is not a clarinet.
Weekend 10/26/2019, Bostonian🎻Stefan Jackiw plays📍Meyerhoff Sun📍Strathmore Sat.

I never posted a pic of Peanut and Grey all finished up! 😱 so much has been happening these last couple of months including lots of surprise portraits that I can’t share. I have to say though, these two are my favorite pups I’ve ever gotten to work on. They’re just so darn cute! .

Everyone, meet Duner! Sadly this big guy passed away but I was so happy to be able to recreate this photo for his family in Oregon. Even better, he was commissioned by a family friend! Swipe to see his before.🖤

"Sometimes you need to take a nap and get over it"
.
I am realizing I want to take my art journey a little more seriously. I see how practicing has made a big difference for me and I believe I can get to the level I see in my head. .
The scary part is getting out of my comfort zone and try things I am not used to doing. I know what I need to do I just need to push myself to do it. We all start somewhere, right? The sooner I start the sooner I will get to where I want to go. So I need to stop being dramatic about it and take a nap and get over it. Ha ha ha .

Oxford, England - UK

Here are a few progress shots of a picture I've been working on of some shops in Oxford city centre.
I went back and photographed this row of shops so many times to try and get a few shots without cars and hundreds of tourists! I got there in the end, sort of, then I made up what I couldn't see 😁✍
Stay tuned for more progress later in the week 🖤

The teachable moments YOU create

An important part of your growth is finding and exploiting your own teachable moments.
Not only should we learn from our mistakes, but sometimes we should spotlight the things we get right, and not only celebrate them, but closely examine them.
Try to figure out what you think you did right, how you did it, and what were the factors, internal and external, that helped to facilitate the results you got.
I usually try to relive the process, from how I may have been looking at the subject, thinking about it, the approach and techniques I used, to even the way I held the pen or pencil. You don't want the time you got the shading right to be a fluke or a once-in-a-blue thing. You want that to become a natural part of your process.
So be on the look out for those times, try to isolate what you did right, then put that into deliberate practice. Master it, then look out for the next one.

Training Wheels

Many times we prolong our progress in learning to do something because we try to avoid things that may reveal we’re just learning how to do it. I guess there’s just something we don’t like about being perceived as a beginner or newbie or amateur.
So, we remove the training wheels and risk crashing the bike to save our pride. We’re only fooling ourselves in the end, though.
Don’t sabotage your drawing progress by skipping the baby steps, no matter how you think it makes you look. Don’t force yourself to avoid using construction lines because you think they may make your drawing look amateurish. Don’t avoid using scrap paper because you think it may seem you’re unsure about your marks. Don’t avoid using a pencil underdrawing as a guide because you think it may seem like you're not spontaneous and can’t draw from your head. Don’t be ashamed of the fact that you spent hours on a drawing because others seem to get the same results in a “quick sketch.” Ignore everyone else, keep using your training wheels, soon you won’t need them.

Training Wheels

Many times we prolong our progress in learning to do something because we try to avoid things that may reveal we’re just learning how to do it. I guess there’s just something we don’t like about being perceived as a beginner or newbie or amateur.
So, we remove the training wheels and risk crashing the bike to save our pride. We’re only fooling ourselves in the end, though.
Don’t sabotage your drawing progress by skipping the baby steps, no matter how you think it makes you look. Don’t force yourself to avoid using construction lines because you think they may make your drawing look amateurish. Don’t avoid using scrap paper because you think it may seem you’re unsure about your marks. Don’t avoid using a pencil underdrawing as a guide because you think it may seem like you're not spontaneous and can’t draw from your head. Don’t be ashamed of the fact that you spent hours on a drawing because others seem to get the same results in a “quick sketch.” Ignore everyone else, keep using your training wheels, soon you won’t need them.
