So the first step into painting is to think about what medium you are going to try out. In art, there are three ones: acrylics, oils, and watercolors. Each one has its pros and cons. So research on it and then pick one that fits you the best.

After picking the medium, you then need to select equipment to start testing it out. And fortunately, you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on seeing if you like this hobby. Instead, all you need to do is buy the canvas, some colors, and a couple of brushes, and you’re good to go.

Then before starting painting, I also recommend you learn the basics of art. This way, you know exactly what you’re doing, and you’re guaranteeing yourself a better painting than without the knowledge.

So, where should you learn? The most cost-effective way is through Udemy courses, as they are always on sale. And if they aren’t, wait a couple of days, and you can buy them for cheap.

And then all that is left to do is start painting. You could learn all there is to know about painting, but nothing will make your picture look better than experience. So go out there and paint. Then reflect and find ways to improve your next painting.
