The following is a page from one of the lessons in my new workshop. It’s something I teach in my retreats and students often say it’s worth the whole price of the retreat.

I think this is the most important thing I ever teach anybody, because it can be an art life changer.



Go ahead and share this with anyone you think it might help.

  1. It’s definitely more friendly and it works for me. My problem comes in when I don’t listen or rush to the finish line, take a photo of my finished page and see how far off something is once I see it on my computer screen. Still, I don’t worry much about it since I’ve pretty much just done journal work up to now. I would like to do some work to put on my wall whether in acrylic or watercolor but then it will matter a tad more. Maybe. I just don’t tend to be one who worries overmuch. I can always paint another one right?

  2. I love this! It’s giving me permission to experiment and make mistakes. I wonder what would happen if I did this….. or added this…. or used this…. Isn’t that one of the best ways to learn?
