Starting acrylic painting is like starting a diet in the new year; you make plans to start and you go out and sign up to your slimming club …((your canvas)) , You go out and buy your slimming food for your diet ((your new brushes)), You go to Starbucks for a coffee and slice of cake because it’s all been too much.
Sound familiar??If you think you’re the only one struggling, think again acrylic is wasy if you give it time.
What are you scared of?
The biggest stock of art materials are in most people’s cupboards, usually still wrapped.You cant wait to create something and know that it is inside you somewhere but the fear of failure is too great even to make the brush first mark.
Our ability to be creative is just amazing, but with creativity comes fear and anxiety. Learning to paint away that stress of everyday life is my key thought as I sit in the studio spare a thought for me as I have to create new lessons each week for Youtube it is the same as learning to play a musical instrument, or driving a car, and the biggest thing stopping you is the fear it self.
What if everyone laughs?
A blank white canvas can be intimidating and overwhelming, putting yourself in the public eye with family and freinds will attract criticism and rejection, laughed at rather than admired.
So the dilemma is…you want to create, but could do without the creeping worry whenever we begin the creative process.
I can show you how easy it is to follow, step-by step lessons to help you to fulfill your artistic journey.
