Learn to paint in Acrylic paints - Step by Step
I have never been one who has demonstrated great, or even moderate levels of artistic ability. I cannot look at a detailed picture and replicate it like a truly talented artist. I have often envied people that have such a remarkable talent
However, I would find myself looking at a tree in full bloom, and I would ask myself "How would I paint that tree? I mentioned this to my wife, and she bought me a beginner's paint set for Christmas 2016. So I have started painting, and really enjoy it.
I find painting therapeutic. It allows me to find explore my emotions, both positive and negative, in a constructive way. It also allows me to exercise the creative person within me through a new venue, and share with others the things I find beautiful.
As a side note: I am really excited about what I am learning here on Karen's site. I am learning that painting is not all talent, but knowledge and technique. I believe learning the things I am learning here will help me become a better artist, and that will allow me the opportunity to express myself better on canvas.
Thanks for reading.
