Deliberate practice


Just a bunch of pencils right?

There is more to it because this is practice, not just getting the lighting, exposure and focus right but starting with a pile of pencils and just looking at them, playing with compositions and placing them in different colour combinations.

If your eye is drawn to the yellow pencil, that’s no coincidence, it’s practice.  It’s all about repeatedly trying , failing and learning.

If only I had a sitter as patient as these pencils…
