    Scheduling my time

    Hey guys/gals/unkowns, I'm trying to buckle down and devote more time to my art and thinking i might start going by a schedule. Right now on a good day i'll draw 1-3 hours if at all, but i'm hoping to devote up to 8 hours a day to it. Would appreciate any input. Here's the schedule i've sketched up, divided into two hour blocks.

    11:00am-1:00pm : Doing things around the house
    1:00pm-3:00pm: ART- 6 ten minute drawing exercises, 6 ten minute still life's
    3:00pm- 5:00pm: ART- Read Andrew Loomis/Bridgman and practice exercises
    5:00pm- 7:00pm: Girlfriend Time
    7:00pm-9:00pm: ART- Study Perspective
    9:00pm-11:00pm: ART- Free Draw (from reference or imagination)
    11:00pm-1:00am: Unwind (with girlfriend)
    1:00am-3:00am: Personal Time/ Margin of error, then bed

    Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. Is there anything else i should work in or replace? I'm also a bit concerned about becoming burnt out, so i may make up a different schedule with less drawing/ more personal time and swap it in when i start to get overwhelmed.

    Eating and bathing should be included somewhere.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    There's an eerily similar thread already started...like 2 threads below this one; it has tons of answers in it that appropriately fit this one.

    Include some time also for the paintings you want to do, to remind yourself why you're practicing all that stuff in the first place, and to apply what you learnt.
