Less is more.
It’s true, I know, but I find it hard to trust, especially when it comes to decorating my pots. Usually, I find out the hard way I need to dial it back and work my way back to “less.”
This motif I’m developing is a good example. My first attempts were too busy, pretty heavy-handed. After mucking up several yarn bowls and a few mugs, it just wasn’t working.
Once I started to simplify, however, using fewer brushstrokes, things got better. I look forward to making more. I mean less, of course. ∆
