What to do when your painting progress stalls?
We all get stuck now and then. I had this problem recently and was getting frustrated with going in circles trying to force my painting. Finally I realised that I needed to go back to basics. Work from there and enjoy the bold statement. This worked a treat!
So I was inspired to set out a few videos on Loosen Up Your Painting to help members facing a similar problem. At some point you will feel the same way I'm sure. We will walk through the process that gives you the most impact, but is still simple to implement quickly.
Then a little bit about keeping your colour clean and vibrant. This is key to bold paintings. This is a major problem for new artists getting into oil painting. It involves the type of brushwork used as well as mixing paint. We all get annoyed when colours turn dull and muddy. That can happen if you are not keeping an eye on the type of hue being used.
I hope that you enjoy this month's installment. If you are not a member of this growing community of artists why not give it a try. Discover more here
