Especially if you’re a beginner painter, there are certain things that you should know and learn before you start developing as an artist.

In addition to that, there is no restriction to what you should learn.

2. Give It All You’ve Got
If you want to become a successful painter you have to remember to give it all you’ve got. In other words, I would advise you to put in all your effort, all your enthusiasm, and everything you have to say into this piece of art.

4. Don’t Get Discouraged
It happens very often that people are there to judge your art do not think the world of it. Perhaps, they are even unable to see the things you have meant for them to see. Sometimes the criticism can be really harsh and difficult to handle. It’s important to remember that each artist goes through a phase where they even start questioning themselves whether their art is relevant, or important, or beautiful. Make sure that you don’t get discouraged, especially if it’s an opinion of just one person.

Be as it may, it’s really important that you make the right connections and connect with right people if you want your art to be noticed.
