Question: Hi , I recently started acrylic and water painting. The first few painting looked good but since have fallen way off  I never painted before so I don’t really know what that means .  Any thoughts would be appreciated!  Thank you, Tom

This is actually pretty common. What happened isn’t that you’ve gotten worse, it’s that you’re now able to recognize your mistakes and areas you want to improve on. This is super common when getting started with art. It’s a good thing even if it feels frustrating. The more you learn, the more critical you will likely be of your own work. That is ok and apart of the growth process!
