Have you ever had a bad experience with an art teacher? Perhaps it’s knocked your confidence and maybe you’ve felt like you should stop painting altogether. In our latest podcast, Colin explains just how destructive negative criticism can be. Colin has been through a similar experience and it stopped him painting for years. Listen below to hear his advice.
We also discuss in the podcast why it is that time passes so quickly when we’re painting. We talk about the therapeutic “meditative” effects of art. Also in the podcast, Colin answers your questions on pastel pencils including applying white back over dark without it looking muddy and how to pick colours for painting pastel portraits.
