OK…first I have to tell you I have never painted anything from “life”. I have drawn many still lifes, but I have NEVER painted any.
I feel very humbled by the process, but I also know that with practice I will get better.
So, I’m just doing a lot of experimenting. Trying not to get too discouraged. There is definitely room for improvement! A LOT of IMPROVEMENT! 🙂
I received the video I mentioned below, but really haven’t used any techniques discussed in the video. I just wanted to see what happened on my own.
