When I first started painting, I didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about my learning process. I was fixed on completing paintings, and so a painting session generally started by choosing a reference photo that appealed to me and then painting it, with only intermittent success.
Over the years I’ve realized a few things about myself that have influenced and adapted the way I approach a new subject in watercolour and how I start a painting session. I’m sharing these insights in this week’s live lesson. Scroll down for a supply list and resources you might find useful!
