“The fear of failure kills creativity and intelligence. The only thing it produces is conformity.”
Trying new things is always scary! The whole process gives me sweaty hands and anxiety, but it is the only way to grow better. Fail and learn, fail and learn!
This week I tried my hand at a painting a landscape again (I have done some before, but they always seemed to come out the same – very generic).
Some examples of my old landscapes:
Back to my Youtube tutor for tips. This clip gave me some great advice on painting clouds.
So, this week’s attempt at a landscape was not great, but I tried and I learnt new techniques. But, I think I will stick to my portraits for the next while.
Earlier this week I did this portrait.
Lastly, I was asked by a friend to do a series of smaller “block” style paintings to present to a gallery next month.
This is the first in the “small block” series I am doing.
Stay posted for more of my art journey!
