Learn How to See Like an Artist

If you’ve never taken a look at my other blog, Right Brain Rockstar, now would be a good time.

I usually write articles with advice and inspiration for people wanting to make a living from their creativity, but this week I posted the first of my art instruction articles, Top 3 Tips For Learning to See Like an Artist.

If you’re an aspiring artist, I’d love it if you’d read that post and let me know if you find it useful. I’m planning to develop a complete art course, and these posts will help me decide what people need the most help with.

Cheap Drawing Advice

If you can’t wait for the course, I’m currently experimenting with offering different forms of art instruction, and for a short time, you can get a drawing or painting critique from me for just $5.

If you send me a drawing or painting you have done, along with the reference photo, I will give you my feedback on your work, with a list of areas you need to work on, and I will even draw/paint over the top of your work to demonstrate my suggestions.

Check out the gig on Fiverr for more details, and let me know if you have any questions about it.

      Hi Sergey

      Looks like your work is all abstract. I can’t really critique that kind of work, it would have to be something representational, like a landscape, still life, or portrait. Do you have anything like that?

    I’m 72 and I have been researching oil painting.
    I just discovered what makes a painting a painting.
    The “edges” are the key. Creating soft edges mixed with
    hard edges controls the viewer’s eye and make the
    painting come to life.
    This concept is so new to me that I still have to rewire my
    brain in this.
