Are you getting in your own way of progress?
When I started my painting journey, I had no confidence in my ability. At school, I had been told I would never be good at art, so I had never really tried to express my creativity in this way.
Each week when we are presented with the image we are going to work from, I have mostly had an initial reaction of “Oh shit 🙈” followed by a period of self-talk around I am good enough and it doesn’t matter what other people think (art is subjective anyway!!)
It is all too easy for us to block ourselves before we even get started, and for most of us, once we become aware that we do it, we realise that it actually shows up in all areas of our life and more often than we think.
I’ve always perceived that animals are hard to create, to capture their character, like the cat last week.
This week is another animal, that I’m actually extremely chuffed with!
When you get out of your own way, you will find that anything is possible.
March Hare was a mixture of techniques including brush layering and palette knife to create an indistinct background.
