Stop Making It Complicated! Try This Exercise ***VIDEO***

Stop making it complicated with this art exercise from Kim Dellow. Blue flower.


Stop making it complicated! I am so good at overcomplicating everything! It is a real talent! But not the best for getting art done is it? Or for getting anything done really. I am also ways trying to de-train this talent and I have an exercise today to share that I hope will help you de-train it too if you also suffer from the good old overcomplicating and overthinking of things!

Of course, if you don’t tend have this issue and you don’t need to stop making it overcomplicated because you don’t already (I am so jealous!) then this is a great warm exercise too!

Support and get behind the scenes, chats and exclusive videos! (Not sure what Patreon is then )
