Back to painting.

I really want to document and share my painting styles and secrets to new artists. The first thing I notice with people is they think they can get something without really working on it. " Just show me how to paint and I will be an artist."

It doesn't work that way. Becoming anything is a process. Art is no different. You first need to take out your pencil and start sketching every thing you see. Start with things that interest you.

Keep it simple.

Again go to and teach yourself to draw first and then paint.

At first taking chances and just painting what gives you a little laugh is better than painting subjects that are far to difficult for the beginner. Take a small section of any paintings and blow it up and look at the brushstrokes.
