Teaching painting

I can teach you composition rules

I can teach you the colour basics

I can teach you how to handle the paint, knife and brushes

But don’t ask me to teach you how to paint, because I can’t

Nor can I tell you what to paint

But be sure, you can paint, you can draw

It is a matter of your willingness, interest and practice

Talent does not make an artist, effort does
