Dear Brush Waggler,
I get it.
Learning to paint is hard. Really hard.
You're probably not sure where to start.
Zipping from one thing to another on Youtube.
As your hair goes fifty shades of grey from all the uncertainty.
And to top it all off,
You're being pulled in a bazillion and one directions.
Should I use acrylics? Oils? Watercolour?
Should I paint on canvas or board?
Is it bad to drink my coffee once I've dipped my brush in it?
How do I stop my colours from going all muddy?
Should I use black?
What sort of blue should I buy?
How will I get this paint out of my shirt? (and my hair).
Look, most painters have a bad case of 'just one more video' syndrome, mixed with a scoop of 'maybe a new painting book'… and a sprinkle of 'maybe I'll try pottery'.
And they end up doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
I call this a 'quick road to netflix on the couch'.
I'd rather rub scorpion chillies in my eyes than learn to paint that way.
But this isn't about me… It's about you.
You're reading this right now because, in some way shape or form, your painting isn't where you want it to be.
Even though you might have put in a fair few brush miles…
Or you're on day one.
OR, maybe you're doing great, and you simply want more.
More painting time to yourself with no-one bugging you.
Whatever it is for you…
I've got good news for you…
'Cause soon you'll be feeling like "hey, I got this!"
You'll be waking up in the morning eager to grab your brushes and throw some paint around.
You'll be looking forward to showing off your latest painting to friends and family.
You'll be painting the way you've always wanted to, with confidence and freedom.
And it won't even matter that you've got paint on the couch (and the cat).
Because life is short and beautiful and you just gotta PAINT IT!
And it all starts by you coming here today, (as if by chance) and choosing to join us on a painting adventure below…
