When I first looked at Painters Online I wanted to join but because the standard was so good I did,nt feel I was good enough so I left it.
The standard is very good and since I joined and have been putting my work on line I have had some wonderful comments which are boosting my confidence. I have been more selective in my portfolios and I have been looking at my work more closer before showing it. I have discovered that poor work does not get better for keeping it.
Drawing and only showing my family is not good feedback, because they think everything I do is good, I liken it to the Xfactor Your family encourage you and when you open your mouth you are rubbish I find its the same with art so I have welcomed your feedback and take it very seriously.
I have a few more pictures to post before I am up to date.Please keep your comments coming and if its bad I am sure I will deserve to hear it. Was,nt it Rolf Harris who said there is no such thing as bad art there was only good art and better art...
