Learn To Paint

You don’t need to be born with artistic talent to learn to paint with acrylics. And you certainly don’t need years of experience to find the joy in painting.

All you need is:

  • a desire to create (which I know you have, otherwise you wouldn’t be here)
  • an open mind & heart
  • dedicated time to explore your creative potential

Even though you might not know it yet, you have everything you need within you to make beautiful paintings and enjoy the process.

You just need to learn a few basics to get you started.

If you want an easy-peasy way to learn everything you need in painting with acrylics this Acrylic For Beginners Bundle: A-Z Guide To Your First Acrylic Masterpiece will be your best pal. It comes with an all-in-one e-book plus much more including:

  • How to make beautiful blends and strokes (#1 beginner challenge solved)
  • The only 12 paint colors you need
  • 5 simple formulas any beginner can use to create gorgeous color palettes
  • 3 full step by step painting tutorials to get you started (paint and sip friendly)
  • and more…

If that’s not you thing, I have a few suggestions on blog posts below to brush up on some acrylic basics also.

Which ever format you choose, just know you’ve moved the dial forward by just being here and wanting to learn more. Good stuff, you are on your way to painting some amazing things, my friend!

How To Paint with Acrylics- Suggested Posts To Start

On this journey of learning acrylic painting I will show you different acrylic techniques, tips, and tutorials.

I’ll also help you overcome the fear of a blank canvas by showing you easy step by step painting tutorials that anyone can do.

To start things off I recommend going through my Beginners Guide to Acrylic Painting. It’ll go over the basics of acrylic paints, the supplies you you need to get started and other useful tips. I’ve also put together a quick-reference list of my recommended best painting supplies for beginners here.

Once you’ve brushed up on the basics, and you want to start your first (or 10th) painting, check out the posts below for inspiration.

If you want even more ideas, take a look at this post for 40+ Easy Painting Ideas, to get your creative juices flowing. There’s a mix of text-based tutorials and video tutorials that you can choose from.

I’ll leave you with a quote that perfectly sums up the experience of creating art. Love this one!

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
