"Whether you’ve never picked up a paintbrush or you’re an experienced painter just looking for some new information, I want to give a warm welcome to you. I hope this book is the start of a love affair with painting that will bring you joy for many years to come. I believe the only really important skill for beginning art students is enthusiasm. Everything else can be learned if you are willing to put in the time, keep an open mind, and work your way through the challenges. I’m not saying it’s easy—for most of us, including me, it’s often challenging. However, the reward of creating something that’s beautiful makes it worthwhile. My hope for this book is to give you some basic tools to get started. Take what feels right for you and leave the rest. Ultimately, creativity lies in figuring it out for yourself—that’s how you do work that is truly yours, and that’s what being an artist is all about."
