My first ever Canvas painting! ♥️
Growing up I was always scared to use paint, acrylics and gouache precisely, since I only knew about these back then and due to the lack of exposure I wasn’t aware that other types of paint existed.
All the times I tried to paint I could never understand the ratio of water to paint ever! When I was 11 or 12 my parents sent me to a summer program to learn acrylics and fabric painting, at that time I didn’t even knew how to hold a paint brush and the teacher there tried to teach me but was super rude, after a week of attending her classes she insulted me and asked me to leave the training saying “You won’t ever be able to learn how to paint”, And so with time I gave up on trying.
Then.. while I was 14 I got to give the Government Intermediate level Drawing painting exams and Even after trying I could only score grade ‘B’.
I almost gave up on painting and pretty much quitted it for 2 years...
Then I got introduced to watercolours (that’s a whole different story! 😂I’ll save it for another post) and even when I got confident with watercolours I couldn’t get myself to paint with acrylics.
Earlier this year I finally bought some canvases, I always felt like they were a bit on the expensive side but I bought them and made myself comfortable with acrylics, the first canvas I ever painted was a gift for a friend, I wish I had picture of it but I don’t. So this is technically the second and It’ll be up for sale on my website or on my Etsy store that I’ll most probably start by next week.
