When I’m doing my daily art I either listen to an audiobook or music. Sometimes I find the audiobook distracting and other times it doesn’t matter at all. I wonder if I tracked what I listen to while painting if I would see a pattern?
I think that maybe if I tracked what I listened to while painting I would find that my painting / drawing is better while listening to music, but I’m not 100% sure about this.
Regardless, I felt more focused today when I switched from my audiobook to music. It was getting a bit distracting. After switching to music I became more focused and was able to lose myself in the process.
1 thought on “Book or Music While Painting?”
As you can imagine, listening to a book would be insanely distracting for my work. But then, so would most music. Perhaps soft instrumental music would be helpful. Not that I recommend you try it.
