Knowing how to use Color and Light in your artworks is one of the best skills to learn as an artist because it will help you take your artworks from good to great.

Key Takeaways

“Listen to what you really enjoy the most and do everything you can to follow it”

  • Lioba’s boyfriend had a great importance in her development as an artist. He guided her, taught her fundamentals, anatomy. She used to be very stubborn in the beginning but soon learned that feedback is a good thing and helped her to improve the most.
  • What is more, Lioba got also a lot of feedback in different areas, personal, professional, e.g. how to present yourself, how to pitch/sell, etc.
  • Lioba’s most difficult time was when she was in her mid-20s and she learned that every artist she followed had ‘huge income’, everybody was running Kickstarter and she was earning only $300/month. So she set a goal that she will start with selling 1 artwork per month in a gallery, once she reached that, she went to 2 artworks, etc. This step by step progress helped her build the confidence and grow further.
