So I made my first painting! 🌛
I got a lot of questions how could my first painting be even this good. You probably don’t realize how much time I spend learning how lights, shadows, colors and perspectives work in the world because I need that knowledge in the editing I usually do for my photos. Only the techniques are different and I think I have watched so many Bob Ross videos in the past that I remembered his teachings 😄
Another important thing when starting to learn something new is the mindset. You learn from the mistakes so don’t be afraid of them. Be curious and try how things work to get familiar with the feeling of the new tools and techniques. When the mind starts making all kinds of excuses why your work sucks and why you should stop, just take a deep breath and see they’re only thoughts, nothing serious. Get some distance from the mind and keep on. Be playful. Do it in a way you enjoy the most. These things have helped me learn some things faster. 👨🏼🎨🎹🎸📸 Happy Creating!
