Art is never finished, only abandoned.Leonardo da Vinci
Now when looking at both versions day after, the simple questions come to my mind: “Was it better before “improvements”? “Should I continue to “improve” it or let it as it is and work on another project?”…
While I was dampened in this dilemma, a friend of mine has lighten up the space. She showed me the possibility of choice: “There is no need to be afraid to finish or to improve further”.
And for the option to improve, I have got a professional pieces of advice from the architect. In regards to my mandarin skins she commented:
- you might work on the structure of mandarin skin
- show the volume of skin and volume of mandarin pieces
- shadows… and so on
- it is like you know the theory but not applying it. It is like you put a chewing gum into a mouth, but it will not melt by itself – chew it!
- Anyway, do not stop and continue!
The insight is taken in: “The art is never finished, only abandoned”…
