Audio books seem wrong on blast

I'm not sure if you've gotten this question before, sorry if you have but I've always been really into trying out painting but I am absolutely terrified of the medium. Do you have any advice for someone who wants to begin painting but has no idea where to start? or perhaps any book suggestions for learning to paint? Thank you so much :) take care!

For me, having a plan before starting a painting is key. make a sketch, take a photo, and work from that. experiment with paint, because you will develop your own style, and thats the quickest way to finding how you will use the medium.

I am 26 years old. I live and work in Toronto. My studio is in an old factory in Toronto, which has not been renovated by big corporations yet, so I lucked in to the spot. It is a perfect place for me to paint, and i wish i could be here forever.

The other day I turned my studio into a Camera Obscura - where i basically block all the light out of the studio except for one hole - which then projects the view outside onto my walls upside down - like a pinhole camera!

lots of fun
