I'm a big fan of "process over product". I love the act of slathering paint on a canvas, and I encourage my students to get consumed by their own art making rather than being distracted by how it might turn out. With that being said, I recognize the importance of documenting the product (grants, shows, portfolios, etc.). In this video Otis College Faculty, Chris Warner, explains how to document your two-dimensional work properly and economically. I hope it encourages people to share their finished work, and maybe even take a few photos of the process too!
