Original Watercolour by Jean Haines
These two words I hear all the time on my workshops or in emails.
" I can't "
These two words are often followed with variants of the following.
"I can't paint portraits"
"I can't paint boats"
"I can't paint figures"
"I can't paint animals"
"I can't paint landscapes"
Anyone can paint anything at all, the only thing stopping you is YOU!
With my technique I only see colour and patterns, not subjects. A face is painted in exactly the same way as a vase of flowers or a landscape. I paint light by working around it to emphasise it. And you can too if you want to.
So if you are looking for a new technique or new subjects to paint I have some homework for you.
I want you to start saying
" I can! "
Everything else will follow from there with a little push from me!
