Painting is a great way to discover your perspective and truly connect with your environment. Here are some tips to help take the intimidation out of creating art, no matter your skill level.
Don’t worry about finding your unmistakable style.
Some people put so much weight on establishing a unique style that they never create anything. Let yourself be inspired by others (which is not the same as copying). Eventually, your own style will naturally arise.
Only you decide what's beautiful.
Free yourself from expectations.
Treat every piece as a work in progress. Don’t like what you see at first? Consider it a first draft. This will free your mind from the pressure of a final product, and you may just surprise yourself by the beautiful pictures you create when you’re not trying so hard to create beautiful pictures.
