There are many painting styles to suit every personality type. You could spend a lifetime learning them and still not touch them all. Perhaps the central theme I hear most though is: "How can I get that loose look. I want to relax and loosen up more." I never hear anyone saying that they want to tighten up their painting. I guess this also covers the emotional need to relax and unwind as well as paint in a free manner.
Now talking about loose painting styles is one thing. But to make a real change means practice. Plenty of it. Also feedback is important. The loose or painterly style is a massive change if you have been a tight, detail oriented painter. Others may think you have lost the plot when you show them your new approach. So getting feedback from artists who know what you are trying to achieve can be difficult to find.
With all of this in mind I began working on a course, but still there is a need for artists to get together and share their views and efforts. So I recently launched a website called Loosen Up Your Painting. The idea is to:
You can become a member of the site for FREE. Founding members will always be able to have free membership. The main idea is participation that will help you develop the looser style you want.
So enough from me. Please click on the button below and check out the website for yourself. The first lesson for August 2016 is up. Plus your first challenge. I hope to see you there!
