A great painter (Larry Seiler) whose advice I admire and appreciate once said,
"It takes 120 bad paintings to know something about painting."
In short, this is my blog about learning how to paint. I've done around 120 painting over the last year. I am going to quickly post all the paintings from the first painting to the latest one. After that my plan is to keep painting. I'm shooting for getting a few done every week.
The point of this blog is just to journal my progress, though I am very happy to say I've sold some paintings already. :)
Brace yourself because it starts out pretty rough (first apple still makes me wince) but it gets much better in my humble opinion. The later paintings were built upon the backs of the first ones and I wouldn't have gotten there without them. That's why I didn't want to post just the good ones.
When I finished posting all of the paintings. I'l see if I can get to the "know something about painting" part. That is, I'll see if I can verbalize what I think I've learned. Here goes nothing...
