10,000 Bad Paintings

They say you have to make 10,000 bad paintings/drawings before you produce anything good. And the sooner you get the bad ones out of the way the better.

That’s a lot of drawing!

It would take 27.39726027397260273972602739726 paintings every day for a year to meet the total.
192.307692307692307692307692307692307692 Per week for a year.
833.333333333333333333333333333333333333 Per month for a year.

I’m not sure that’s doable.

13.6986301369863013698630136986301369863013 Per day if you stretch it into two years.

9.1324200913242009132420091324200913242009 Per day if you stretch it into three years.

6.849315068849315068849315068849315068849315068 Per day if you stretch it into four years.

5.479452054794520547945205479452054794520547945205 Per day if you stretch it into five years.

4.566210045662100456621004566210045662100456621004 Per day if you stretch it into six years.

3.9138943248532289628180039138943 Per day if you stretch it into seven years.

Well, you get the idea.

If you did just one a day it would take 27.3972602739726027397260273972602739726026 years to reach that total!

I figure with what I’ve done already and figuring sometimes it’s more than one a day and some days it’s none….I’ll produce my first ‘really good’ painting/drawing around 2039!

I’ll be 86

Just call me Grandma Moses! LOL


  1. I'd have trouble working out the maths let alone doing a good painting! lol
