Hello! Before I continue with today’s post I want to share a posting agenda. Every Sunday I’ll post the art lessons I’ve learned throughout the week. Every Wednesday I’ll post an update on my current project including tips. I’ll be posting a random tutorial post on one of the other days. Ok, let’s get this post started.
These are the lessons I’ve learned as an artist this week.
In-between state of mind
At the first sign of mistakes, I’II want to start over. I haven’t felt the need to start over! Ok, I threw out a few sheets of paper because I made a mess with the paint BUT I work in peace. I don’t think about the work being good or bad. Sometimes I do but then I choose to keep painting.
I’ve been blogging for a long time. Every day there are more of you. Thank you so much! And I appreciate the kind feedback. I want to believe that I encourage all of you to paint and or add joy to your days. When I read your comments I say, “Really? You think my roses are beautiful? I’m in the practice phase.” I forget that what makes art wonderful is there’s room for all of us! We can all be given the task to paint a rose. How we paint the rose is art. There’s no right way to paint a rose! By the way abundance mindset is a term I borrowed from Ettavee.
Have a little plan
Neocolours are water-soluble crayons. Before I paint, I sketch with Neocolour crayons. When I hold a Neocolour in my hand it reminds me of crayons. And crayons are childhood. These crayons help me keep art loose, exploratory, and playful!
Sometimes I’ll set up my favorite color and sketch. Or I’ll think of how the orange roses on my walk made me feel and I paint! Most of my process is anything goes. There’s this artist who likes to mix up paint right on the canvas instead of a palette. All these little ideas help me start. All you have to do is start. You don’t have to know how to paint. Just paint! I’m fact if you’re thinking I don’t know how, you’re doing it wrong.
So basically it’s the little plans that create the state of mind and state of mine welcomes the abundance mindset.
