In January 2021 I started trying out painting in an extra sketchbook I had. I found it more fun than I anticipated. I disliked painting in middle school; being graded on it was stressful. I recall a distaste for having to mix paints and failing to recreate the right colours.
I am currently learning with gouache and watercolour.
A few channels / videos I've been enjoying.
James Gurney's channel is a delight! A lot of his videos demonstrate how he does plein air painting with gouache and water color, which is fascinating to watch and listen to. Kind, talented, funny and entertaining.
