barbe - I know what my teacher would say to you, exactly ("it's very easy, it's just following certain principles"), and then he would have you doing oils fairly proficiently within 2 to 3 three hour classes. My hand is still not that steady, but it is getting better. I'm still hit or miss with mixing paints to get the exact color I want and I often don't get my values dark enough (principle #1, get the value right first).

If you want to see what comes out of this teacher check out "Art Roster" in Facebook.

Try this << link to my teacher's bio on Wikipedia.

I'm serious when I say my teacher could teach anyone to oil paint. I honestly believe this (I didn't before I started taking his class). It really is a matter of finding the right mentor to guide you through. I will not say that about watercolor, though perhaps, with the right teacher. So my painting is my way of saying this.

There's a group here of Urban Sketchers who meet once a month or so, sketch/paint whatever they want at the site and compare what they've done at the end. Google Urban Sketchers Seattle. My art teacher is a member and encourages us to give it a try. They welcome beginners.

QuinnCat ditto what some others said. I am very creative, artistic setc and have never been a painter. Different talent altogether, some people play piano, others cook or write computer programs. Creativity has a multiplicity of manifestations.

I agree word for word with Mum2fourplusmore

Congratulations on your wonderful painting. Keep up the great work!!

This one is very raw and near and dear to my heart it is called

Cancer:The new Emotion

I looked in the mirror one day and did not recognize the emotion on my face at all. It was too many combined all at once sadness, rage, anger, overwhelmed, powerless, stubborn, brave, courageous, defeated, battling, futureless, dreaming

The painting symbolizes many things to me - my long long hair I always had before cancer - my left breast is accented as that's where my cancer began, my arms and one leg are sinking into the darkness- one foot is still in the light holding on fighting to stay up- my face is half dark as that is the side no one gets to see the side of me that is scared and sad the side I do not think love ones could handle, it is my hidden feelings side- they get to see the light side of my face the de side that is brave strong and fearless
