Guggi Talks About Why to Never Give Up on a Painting

By: John Ibbitson - Published: • References: guggi and youtube
In this conversation with Irish painter Guggi, the artist compares incomplete works to difficult children and tells his viewers that they should never give up on a piece. He explains that he'll never walk away from a painting until it is complete. This doesn't mean you can't walk away from it for a while and work on something else, but he stresses that you should always come back to your original work until it is completed.

He shows how by doing this, one is left with a sense of fulfillment and how this can strengthen one's skills as an artist. In this insightful conversation, Guggi also describes how hard work, determination and discipline can be just as important factors as talent when it comes to art.
