Since taking the PYS class and seeing the work of other artists that I admire, I decided to make the leap last week and paint over a couple of collaged backgrounds.
Let me tell you it was scary!
Panic set in, anxiety welled up in me and my first thought was "What if I mess up this great background?"
I've yet to learn that "let go, let the painting lead you" thing that more experienced artists embody.
Much to my surprise once the paint brush started moving I was okay with the process and quickly realized all the great shapes and forms that could come out of this.
Now, mind you these aren't great works of art or anything, but for me they examples of my willingness to learn something new. I know as a new artist my desire to learn and explore new techniques is with me everytime I am in my studio.
What areas, not previously explored, are you utilizing in your art?
