There were so many, but I really like this one.

Using Kid Art Instruction

I like to use children’s art instruction books to explore art. I find the actual instructions are often much better than in books for adults. On the flip side, the emphasis is on creating something specific. Beginners, like everyone, suffer from “blank sheet paralyzation”, so while the specificity may limit creativity initially, there is no reason why one can’t take the technical instruction from the lesson and create fabulous art, like my painting above. I felt great joy creating that piece, and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
