8 x 8 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
Often in learning it helps to do a small piece to get your feet wet before attempting something larger and more complex. I often tell my beginning students I'd like prefer they do 10 smaller paintings instead of one large painting. that way they won't be so invested in one large painting and they'll get 10x the learning. That model fits for painting and other types of learning too.
I recently decided to experiment with adding videos to help share information about my offerings. I took the same "baby step" approach. I started with a short 1 1/2 minute video about my book. Learned a lot of lessons by actually doing it that I would not have gotten just by thinking or reading about it. Here's my first baby step.
As the saying goes, "How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice". I'll share more of my "practices" with you as they evolve.
