Signed up for an short, beginnin acrylic painting class with a friend today! There's a new art space and gallery in town that's offering 2 for 1 deals on some classes, so it worked out well.
I am so excited to finally be taking a step towards learning to paint. I've wanted to do it for quite a while, but haven't had either the courage or the time. Alternating excuses really...
Been using Corel PainterX to do some digital painting, but find that not having the body knowledge of what it feels like to move the paint around a canvas hinders the painting. It's hard to choose from all the brushes and paint techniques without having the experience of using them first. This will be a great first step towards learning more about how paint vs pixels works.
Now I just have to pick a colour scheme, buy canvas, brushes, paint.......WooT!
