While this guide was written for musicians---the concepts are quite applicable to, and advantageous for, visual artists. There is a slight bit of misrepresentation in the beginning of the guide regarding the research of K. Anders Ericsson (again, placing more emphasis on the 10,000 hours rather than the content of practice time---always a pet peeve of mine), but I assure you that there are some great tips for deliberate practice that follow. Give it a read:

I especially find practice hacks #4, #6, #7 and #8 in the above guide describe strategies that I already use for my 30-minute alla prima works. A significant focus of mine for such exercises is to experiment with, and automatize effective abstraction (simplification/distilling) strategies to promote attributes of constancy (in other words, trying to get better at distilling objects down to promote seemingly-invariant conceptual features that are essential to successful visual communication of an object as opposed to the unnecessary, the redundant, or the transient.) Hope you find this helpful. Have a great week all~~~ #arteducation #arted #deliberatepractice #fineart #allaprima #realism #representationalism #representationalart #aaaw

Sometimes my job is stressful and sometimes I get to frame amazing art work! This guy brought in an original Salvador Dali block print and I died! #art #representationalism #aliceinwonderland #salvadordali #blockprint

A few of you are asking about the supplies used for this drawing...it's about 90% ultra soft black PanPastel (applied with various sponges), 9% carbon (Wolff's carbon pencil 4B for dark sharp areas I couldn't get clean with the pastel), and 1% graphite for like five fine brow hairs šŸ˜† (with a mechanical pencil) and tightening lighter areas with some H pencils (like around the teeth highlights). I used a Tombo MonoZero eraser to get fine white (or light) highlights (like the peach fuzz on the chin and pore highlights). And it's all done on a smooth paper (not sure of the brand- it was just part of a left over paper roll I had kicking around the studio).

Much of my own artistic development has come from countless alla prima life studies. If you want to maximize development--maintain your focus but diversify your experience. šŸ‘šŸ» #oilpainting #realism #representationalism #allaprima

Hope everyone is having a fun July 4th weekend. As such, I thought I would share this awesome work done by my wife @leahfw45 a few years back. This is "Relic", 10x8", Oil. Hope you dig it! šŸ‡ŗšŸ‡ø #greatart #representationalism #realism #interior #aaaw

Just starting into a new commission work that explores a very interesting relationship between painting and sculpture. Far to go but I'm really looking forward to it. šŸ‘šŸ»ā¤ļøšŸ‘šŸ»ā¤ļø #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip #aaaw

#RepresentationalismĀ (also known asĀ Representative RealismĀ orĀ Indirect RealismĀ orĀ Epistemological DualismĀ or theĀ Representative Theory of Perception) is the philosophical position that the world we see inĀ conscious #experienceĀ is not the real world itself, but merely a miniature virtual-reality replica of that world in anĀ internal representation. Thus, we know only our ideas orĀ interpretationsĀ of objects in the world, because a barrier (orĀ veil of perception) between the mind and the existing world preventsĀ first-hand knowledgeĀ of anythingĀ beyondĀ it.
