Things I wish I knew when I started out

Over time, we all learn shortcuts, hacks and money saving tips to do our business. I am working on an e-book to share that information. If you have any tips that you would like to have included, please drop me an email or hit me up on messenger.

From home made Stay Wet Palettes to framing, there are things you can do to keep the costs reasonable until you begin to sell your artwork. The only thing never ever to cut corners on is time at the easel. Paint and draw every day, even if it is only for a few minutes. Daily practice will improve your skills faster than any other method.

I also recommend that you use the most archival methods available to keep your artwork looking good years down the road. Keep your brushes clean and always leave the studio or painting area tidy and ready to get right to work the next morning. Just like waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes from last night's supper, you don't want to start with a dirty palette and goopy or dried brushes that have to be salvaged.

All this and much more will be in the e-book. Watch this space to know when it will be available.
