HOW DO I START OR REPLY TO A DISCUSSION IN THE FORUM?
Watch this video and you will learn how! :)
There are a couple of ways you can share your paintings with the group:
1. Just share, no critique
You can post up to 3 paintings a day - go to your "My Page" tab or just post them below in "Latest Activity". Photos posted will be admired and enjoyed, but will not get an in depth critique. So if you aren't interested in suggestions for changing or improving your painting from myself and other members, just post the photo. So, for members commenting -
please don't critique a photo unless it is specifically requested by the artist.
Positive comments are always good! We don't want anyone to be discouraged! There is also a "sharing only, no critiques" discussion category you can use.
To see all the photos recently posted, go to the "Photos" tab above and choose "All Photos"
2. Learn specific ways to improve your paintings through Constructive Critiques
Go to the "Forum" tab and start a discussion - there is a short video above if you need help with this. Use the Constructive Critique Category when you post the discussion - that is the default category, so if you don't change it you will automatically be in Constructive Critiques.
I, and your fellow members will do our best to give you concrete suggestions as to what you can do to improve your painting, and also what specifically is working well. This is all in the spirit of learning and growing as we are all on this journey together! When you post your painting and open it up to critique, you are helping many other members who aren't ready to do that. We all make many of the same mistakes when we are learning, and so can all benefit from reading through these critiques. When you look at someone else's painting for how it could be improved, it is somehow much easier than seeing the faults in our own "children" :)
So, lets see those paintings!
