  • 41. Failing Forward - Learning To Pause Before You Start

    49:46
    This week we are chatting about how we reboot or start new artworks and art projects. We discuss the ways that we have failed at this in the past, by jumping in too quickly and not fully allowing ideas to develop, and how we both want to get better at pausing before rushing ahead. When thinking about planning, it’s no surprise that Julie is more of a spreadsheet user and Phoebe tends to use her less reliable ‘mind map’ system… We also discover the ‘interesting’ way that Phoebe visualises a year.We hope you enjoy this chat, please share with us how you like to plan and restart!PG & JBMentioned:Sarah Tasker - Letters To A Hopeful Creative Episode hereListener Fail: Sierra Roberts @sierrarobertspaintFind Julie here: www.juliebattisti.com , @juliebattisti & Julie’s newsletterFind Phoebe here: www.phoebegander.com , @phoebeganderart  & Phoebe’s newsletter:Podcast Website:Submit a question or fail hereBuy us a Ko-fi! Please don’t forget to rate and review!

  • 39. Interview with Alice Sheridan

    01:12:00
    This week we chat with Alice Sheridan, a London based artist, one half of the popular art podcast ‘Art Juice’, and creator of the ‘Connected Artist Club’, a supportive art community full of advice, resources and workshops.Alice spoke really honestly about her failures, what struck us most how insightful she is when she looks back onto past and recent failures. There’s so much to learn from Alice’s thoughtful approach to her art making, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!Alice’s WebsiteConnected Artist Club:Art JuiceFind Julie here: www.juliebattisti.com , @juliebattisti & Julie’s newsletterFind Phoebe here: www.phoebegander.com , @phoebeganderart  & Phoebe’s newsletter:Podcast Website:Submit a question or fail hereBuy us a Ko-fi! Please don’t forget to rate and review!

  • 38. Interview with Amber Creswell Bell

    51:54
    After our ‘Finding gallery representation’ episode we had a bunch of interesting questions from you lovely folks that we definitely wanted to dig into deeper and answer, but we also weren’t sure we were the best people to answer them which is where the idea for this episode came from! We wanted to interview a curator and ask her your questions. We feel we were incredibly lucky that Amber said yes as she was so generous and helpful with the information she gave, we felt we learnt a lot, and we hope you do too! Find out more about Amber Creswell Bell Find out more about Michael Reid galleriesMentioned in the show:Willy Russo’s interview with Amber on ‘Interview with an Artist’Art W**k’s interview wtih AmberVisit the Fail Like An Artist  newsletter for more info on Amber plus a summary of what we talked about- too many to fit in the show notes!Find Julie here: www.juliebattisti.com or @juliebattisti Julie’s newsletterFind Phoebe here: www.phoebegander.com or @phoebeganderart Phoebe’s newsletter:Buy us a Ko-fi! Please don’t forget to rate and review!

  • 36. Evolving your art style

    01:13:12
    This week we revisit the topic of art style. We dig into the difference between style and genre and discuss how our art styles have emerged, and where they continue to evolve. We discuss the pros and cons of wanting to try ‘everything’ and how some people seem to display a style from the get-go. Julie talks through the differences between her two styles of painting, but doesn’t want to be pigeonholed, and Phoebe shares her S.T.Y.L.E acronym that explains how her style is evolving and what things she’s let go of in order to grow. We realise that a style is not a thing that you arrive at but a continually evolving process!Mentioned in the show:Creative Pep Talk (Andy J Pizza) episodes on style:Episode 354Episode 392Laura Horn Art Podcast Susan Nethercotes PodcastBen Howard articlePhoebe’s colour mixing course “The Key To Colour Mixing” - 20% off with code ‘spring20’Newsletter: (published each week with Tuesdays episode)Facebook Group:Find Julie here: www.juliebattisti.com , @juliebattisti & Julie’s newsletterFind Phoebe here: www.phoebegander.com , @phoebeganderart  & Phoebe’s newsletter:Podcast Website:Submit a question or fail hereBuy us a Ko-fi!

  • 35. You Asked, We Answered!

    49:00
    This week we thought we’d try something new, so as the title suggests we asked the listeners to throw some questions at us. From our favouring artists to our favourite colours, there’s hopefully something of interest for you to listen to as we witter on... Full disclosure, we asked for questions aimed specifically at either of us but ended up just having a big ol’ pile that we picked randomly from. So sorry if we asked the wrong question to the wrong person, or if we didn’t manage to get to your question, we might just have to do another Q&A episode down the track! Keep the questions and fails coming, you can DM us a voice note @faillikeanartist on instagram and we might just play it out on the pod - Imagine that!Mentioned in the show:None of these are sponsored ( I mean, we wouldn’t say no if any of you are reading this!) ‘Read this book if you want to take great photographs” Henry CarrollGamblin Ground hereLangridge Oil PrimeMaria KempCindy RizzaDavid HockneyRic SantonArtristic Easel NewsletterFacebook GroupFind Julie here: www.juliebattisti.com , @juliebattisti & Julie’s newsletterFind Phoebe here: www.phoebegander.com , @phoebeganderart  & Phoebe’s newsletter:Podcast Website:Submit a question or fail hereBuy us a Ko-fi!
