Re: Swing in sunset

There are some classes in the Information Kiosk. And I have learned a lot just by looking and reading here. But taking it in little by little was more appealing to me than taking a course.

I don't like drawing either, but if I jump in without preparation I don't know what I'll end up with lol. Some people can do that, but for many it's better to plan first.

But if you feel like you are learning something from the course then keep going.

I totally agree about making a drawing once I am actually thinking up the painting myself. At present, I am just trying to get comfortable with brush techniques. You may all laugh but I had the hardest time painting tree branches. They would look stiff or look like a bad cartoon. Len Hend's video on Open Learning shows how to hold your brush loosely. He actually attaches an elastic to the brush and lets the brush dangle and drags it on the canvas. Honestly, I thought this was wonderful and it taught me how to paint tree branches that look like tree branches. Oh, this is not illustrated obviously in the small tree above.
