Advice from the Artist
There are many ways to learn a complex and personal subject such as art. However, a sound background in direct observation and representational painting is always useful to achieve a reasonable standard of skill in one's chosen medium.
Many objects around us are good subjects for beginners to draw and paint. Once you have learnt how to see and how to record the objects on a surface, you can then experiment with different techniques and media. You can even further explore the world of imagination and work with intuition.
You can do it if you want to learn it and you take action in art making. One who has regular and continuing practice will certainly produce better results in one's art work, be it representational or non-representational art.
It is fun and useful to learn sketching and painting and to continue learning and practicing them regularly.
