I suppose great art has often been about courage. That is, being brave enough to let your own unique artistic expression shine through. I see art as 2 basic things: technical ability combined with courage.
Once you get some technique under the belt, there comes a point where you want to launch off from the status quo and explore how to make your paintings be a more personal expression. I’m all for exploring! That’s why this website is called “Creative Painting Adventures”.
How about you – do you wish you had more courage in your approach to painting, or are you happy with the creative freedom of expression that you have found? You can comment below – thanks!
