Tips For Experimenting With Painting Techniques!

Experimenting with paints can be a frustrating experience if you are invested in the finished product being the best painting you've ever done. Sometimes they turn out that way, but remember that trial and error is part of the path to a better understanding of your tools and techniques.

2. Think of each of your paintings as an exercise! Hand eye coordination and training our eyes to see shapes, values and hues are all part of the learning curve.

3. Experiment with larger subject matter first: As your skills of precision become more honed, experiment on the more delicate aspects of your paintings.
