I sometimes paint by myself when I’m trying new things, colour studies of a tattoo I’ve got coming up or just experimenting. When I get to paint with a group of friends it’s even better, watching other people’s process of painting is a great way to learn, what brushes and paints they use, how they colour blend, what approach do they use, line it first or last? it get’s me super amped up to be creative. Reading this article by Shane Tan kinda did the same thing, he goes through what he uses and his process. It’s also comforting to hear that some of his creations hit the painting graveyard before completion, I’ve attended that funeral way too often. So yeah, worth checking out.
