I am the same way, Jill…I feel like the internet is one of those scary deep-sea angler fish with that light protruding from their head, luring me in to devour me, haha. Once I extricate myself, do my own thing, find my own inspiration, I’m a lot better off! Glad you enjoyed the article!!
Thank you! You will get there! Just keep painting…once you develop your skills, you will gravitate toward some things, cast aside other things, and the combination will be all your own. Good luck on your journey!
Laura, I get that. Whenever I work in acrylic, as opposed to watercolor, I always get a different feel and overall feel from those paintings. Working in different media helps me loosen up in my watercolor approach, even change some things…there is a great book called Art and Fear that delves into the subject, and I’ve read it multiple times!
Your post made me think of that Maya Angelou quote: “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Along the same line of what you’re saying…I completely agree!
