I LOVE watching people draw and paint. One of my struggles with drawing or painting anything substantial is simply knowing where and how to start. I loved art class in high school and college, but it wasn’t until I took a painting class as an adult that an instructor explained how to build a painting from the background up. (I suppose I could have looked it up, but stick with me.)
This video is brief and set on fast-forward, but you can see how the artist establishes a base of color before adding any details. An obvious step for a real artist, but for someone who draws for fun and enjoys stumbling through it and discovering things, this is such a great a-ha! moment.
