When you start painting you will make all kinds of mistakes. That is just part of the journey. Making mistakes is not an issue in painting, provided you are able to identify the mistakes and learn from them. The problem when you are a beginner is that you will not be able to see most of the mistakes you make. You may be able to tell that something is off in your painting, but you will struggle to narrow down on what that problem actually is.
Looking at a great painting, it can be hard to remember that every artist was an absolute beginner at some stage. Everyone has to start somewhere, and it's perfectly okay if you don't know what kind of paint to use on your first canvas. With this guide you can start to avoid some mistakes and keep on painting!
