How to build the Quality of Balance, Rhythm, and Harmony
Quality of Balance Rhythm and Harmony. Every child is an artist. We began life with unlimited potential. If you want to see a group of artists get a bunch of four-year-old’s together, give them some crayons and paper. Then sit back and watch them create art. Every one of them is an artist at that age because they don’t have any fears or pre-conceived concepts of what art is.
They know what fun is and they enjoy it for the simple pure pleasure of doing it. Unfortunately, when they get older. They stop creating art for the fun of it and worry too much about what others think. They lose their sense of play and when that happens. Beside they lose their ability to make art for the pure joy and fun of it. Early in life, you feel the need to seek the approval of others to validate what you are doing. As I have grown older, I realized the most important approval is my own.
‘’ I can assure you what is in my heart and it is not different than what is in anyone else’s heart. Everyone wants to love and respect.’’
I have found the secret to being an artist. It is you have to make art not only one but lots of it. I think to be great at anything you have to love what you do. You only need to put the time in the studio with the materials in your hands. There are no short cuts it is about commitment, hour by hour day by day and year after year. Your mastery of craft is directly proportional to the sheer number of hours you spend in the effort.
In the end, it is not about how many years you lived in this world but what you leave behind that truly matters.
Knowledge of anatomy is a tool, like clean clay and a good rake.
Qualities of Basic Principles
Quality of Balance Rhythm and Harmony. You cannot make a sculpture without involving your body. The hands execute the eyes judge. By the time I have to shut my eyes in order to see. When I finish my work, I like to be alone.
Art making is mostly a product of hard work. Living life productively. If you do not live your life productively anything will save your artwork, not only but also talent. It is more important to be productive and creative. If you are productive creativity will take care of itself. If you are not productive how do you possibly expect to be creative?
Art is furthermore the product of a commitment made by ordinary people and then it is the product of unique talent possessed by only a chosen few.
Caring about the work you do is the single best indicator that others will care about it too.
If you believe in your heart that other people are like yourself then you hold the key to making art that matters
Balance, proportion, rhythm, and harmony are the qualities that encompass beauty. A curve does not exist in its full power until contrasted with a straight line.
Qualities of Balance Rhythm and Harmony is the natural order of life
Treat nature in the terms of the cylinder not only but also the cube, the sphere, and the cone. The principle of balance is the natural order of life. Plants grow towards the sun, rivers flow downhill, trees bend in the wind, and water can cut through rock. There are rhythms in everything in life. Notice the changes of the seasons, the cycles of the moon, the measure of night and day the movement of the tides, and in the sets of the waves. You cannot feel the rhythm with your mind you must feel it in your body.
