I have enjoyed some paint nights with some lovely artists in my studio. The overwhelming sentiment on having a witness to art making, is that it's intimidating at first but quickly releases and becomes super rewarding.
The rewards come in support from fellow artists;
commentary on what they love (which boosts your confidence on your work),
seeing a direction that you could implement, be it in colour, technique or subject matter.
I could go on. But you get the gist, the panic quickly goes away and the community support grows exponentially.
Which brings me to you, I bet you have always wanted to do art but for the reasons stated above, you have opted to find an excuse? It's so common but a very unique feeling that shouldn't be underestimated, and nor should your courage!
I invite you to consider Wednesday Painting Meetup
