I live in Norway. Learning by doing is my method of painting. I have always wanted to paint, but I let the notion of me not being able to draw, stop me. Then, on Christmas 2018 my son gifted me painting equipment. Guess he saw potential.
I have been painting since January 2019 and I think it is frustrating and fulfilling at the same time. But I experience it to be more and more fun as well, so I guess I am on the right track.
I paint with acrylic, watercolor pencils, and oil pastels, all in the same picture. And sometimes colored chalk. I have a favorite brush which is a blending brush for makeup. And sometimes I paint with a squeegee. I use lots of different things in the house to get the effect I am after.
I paint intuitively so my paintings never end up the way I planned. And I am my worst critic like it usually is, and I have painted over so many paintings to get to this humble beginning.
