Embracing the Unexpected

The Beauty of Imperfection; One of the fundamental principles of painting loosely is embracing imperfections. Unlike traditional approaches that strive for precision, this style encourages you to see mistakes as opportunities rather than setbacks. In our video tutorial, you'll witness how a seemingly 'wrong' brushstroke or a color that doesn't quite match your initial vision can lead to beautiful and unexpected results. By allowing these unplanned elements to coexist with your original intent, you create artwork that feels alive and dynamic.
