Sometimes you have to go back and look at some of your earlier paintings to see what you were doing then and to see where you are growing. When you hear Beyonce sing, you recognize her voice -- when people see you paintings, they should recognize you -- the you that has evolved into your own style. It is great to learn from others, and then take all of the things that you have learned and create your own “style”.
Certainly we all recognize a Vincent painting -- he developed his own style by simply painting -- every day.
Learn from others -- go to the galleries and check out what is happening and take home what you love and find yourself in your art!
