My Thoughts on Learning to Paint

A few years ago I gathered suggestions  from the many artists I had had the good fortune to spend time with .  To that I added gems from my reading and my own thoughts as I explored my learning. 


I gathered them for my own bennefit – to crystalize my thoughts and to keep the ideas in front of me.  I shared them in the first few workshops I did ( they were five day fundamentals workshops and we had plenty of time to chat) , then put them away and forgot about them.  


I came accross the again and  thought that they might still be useful to new artists entering their journey.


They are a bit dated. They were done before the time of the I Phone and Google Search. There are so many more systems for learning today from You Tube clips to on-line learning programs. Still they might be helpful .
