Rome, as they say, wasn’t built in a day. Quality work takes time, and sometimes you have to tweak your work several times after taking breaks to get it just right. You might be able to churn out something of passable quality on a deadline, but high quality masterpieces take time and patience.
The next time you find yourself up against a deadline completely lacking in inspiration, look to the Masters. Claude Monet painted 250 renditions of Water Lilies over a 26 year span. And that was while he was suffering from progressive cataracts! His work is now housed in museums and private collections around the world. So cut yourself some slack. Quality work takes time, and it’s normal to fall into a rut once in a while.
Check out this infographic for more about the working habits of the great Masters. You just might find inspiration in their work!
