An ambiguous title, but for a reason
I would be interested to know how others go about their work. Do you plan in detail (as I tend to do) or do you just let the creative juices flow.
I tend to sketch ideas out - for my composite work, often stew on them for weeks, or months ( I have a few ideas that I've had for 5 years). The exceptions are those done late at night, often when I've had a glass too many. I've had some disasters, and some pleasant surprises.
This been the most successful normally I wouldn't use selective colour!!
My question is for the best creative work do you think a more organic workflow works best, or do you think planning the work is the most productive?
