My First Painting Quotes

My First Painting Quotes

Fine art painting has a history of thousands of years. It began with cave paintings and later evolved into a form of art that should be exposed to the public. Every painting is different and sounds different to the ear and eye. The main goal in creating art is not to look for any similarities. 

The feeling of painting for the first time is a strange feeling. The excitement to see what the final result will look like. But then, painting for the first time can really be quite fun. You have a lot of freedom to paint whatever your heart desires. Sometimes you finish it up and it looks good. Other times you realize there’s a lot more work to do on it. 

It’s overwhelming to stand in front of an easel with a blank canvas. Having a blank canvas can cause painters to freeze up and feel like they’re missing out on a great opportunity. Oftentimes I’ve experienced the thought, ‘I have to go paint’ — but then that anxiety creeps in when deciding which painting technique to use.

We all started somewhere, that’s what they always say. It’s a good thing to remember for yourself, but also for others. When you see a newbie art student struggling to learn the ropes, you can give them a piece of advice like this one.

Here is the list of my first painting quotes to inspire every artist beginner and pro alike. These hand-picked my first painting quotes have been curated by me to give you access to an incredible library of inspiring my first painting quotes and sayings.
