Sometimes you just gotta start and everything will fall into place.
Last night, I didn't know what I was going to do on my painting before I sat down to paint. But I knew I had to sit down to paint, especially since I'd made a commitment to painting on live broadcast.
I'll admit I was a bit worried.
But almost as soon as I put the brush to the canvas, the picture started coming together for me.
I started one place and I just kept seeing places that needed painting and knowing almost exactly what was needed there.
You see, you're not going to know what to do on your painting when it's off in a corner. Comparing your project to your reference photo helps a lot of course, but a lot of times, what you really need to do is just start painting.
So have you ever felt like you'd figured out what to do after you got started painting or drawing? If not, I encourage you to give it a try and tell me how it goes.
