Have you ever taken an art class? You may have learned very useful techniques and a bit of art history. But, no matter what you learned about the methods or the greats in art, don’t let them rule your artistic world.
Sure, there are patterns and tendencies in art. But, there are not rules. Rules never helped to create truly meaningful art. Rules never made life-changing discoveries. Usually, it is the other way around. The really great pieces of artwork are so creative and impressive that rules are based off of them. So, when it comes to art (as in many areas of life) be a leader not a follower.
