I started doing art when I was very young and then gave it. About a year ago I picked it back up because my life was going down hill and I needed something to keep me in check. So I started painting again. I am also a professional magician so this keeps my mind in 2 places instead of one. But I started with watercolor and had a cheap set and did very well. Then I wanted some help improving so I called a painter on YouTube I won’t say his name and he said he would help me by giving me lessons since I’m young and broke. But I would have to switch to oil painting. I got all of my paints and easel. Spending lots of money then he ghosted me. So I started trying the draw mix paint method and something is not clicking. So I have been getting slightly frustrated and losing motivation to paint. If anyone has been through a similar situation it would be nice to hear some advice.
