please refer to yourself as an ‘artist’

Welcome to Reckless Painting

  • if you don’t already, please refer to yourself as an ‘artist’
  • “Everybody is talented, original and has something important to say.” Brenda Ueland 1938
  • as often as possible, try not to think about painting while painting
  • seek honesty, but feel no need to explain (except to yourself)
  • be gentle with the brushes
  • none of this will count for your final mark
  • heed your first reaction
  • ‘suitable for framing’ can be intimidating
  • when painting ignore adversity: disliking work in progress can be an important step
  • criticism – be it constructive, helpful or well-meant – is not always helpful
  • ‘untitled’ only works once
