Racehorses. There’s a reason they are pre-equipped with Blinders for the big race.
The blinders are there on the right and left side of the horse’s face to make sure they aren’t distracted by what else is going on around them. The horse won’t miss a step. Full speed ahead, tunnel vision!
Thats how artists should be. Put your blinders on & invest in some Tunnel Vision. Do you. Forget what the others are on.
