In this episode of my podcast I’m talking about creating indoors VS outdoors. I elaborate on how these are different, and what the benefits are of doing both.
I focus mainly on the implications for visual artists – painters, sketchers, sculptors and so on.
Working outdoors is messier, more dynamic, full of changes, distractions and so on. However, it’s much more immersive, and sucks you into the scene.
Working indoors is cleaner, more well-organised. But it does take you out of the environment to some extent, and “weaken” some of your senses and perception.
I believe you can get the most benefit by practicing to alternate between the two. This means working outdoors, and then indoors.
I also aspire to do both. That way my skills in one are will flow to the other.
In this episode I mention James Gurney. He is an amazing artist and creator, most well know for creating the Dinotopia book series.
But the reason I personally love him is his tutorials on YouTube, where he paints mostly with gouache paint. This actually got me really interested in gouache myself, and I’ll probably give it a try in the future!
