About Online Painting Classes

How to learn painting for beginners?

The key is to understand the basic fundamentals of painting: the materials, brushes, tools, types of painting, drawing, color theory, composition. To get inspired by other artists’ work is really important. Picking up a canvas and start painting is always something that pushes you forward. Painting for kids usually starts with giving them the freedom to try various colors and brushes before guiding them. For adults, a certain amount of practical skills in terms of contouring and drawing will be helpful before beginning to paint. It is advised to get guidance from teachers to shape your right painting path. A handy tip for beginner painters is to get sketch pens, a book and start painting from real life. You could also practice proportions to further hone your art skills.
