Finding Inspiration: Tips to Energize Your Painting Finish

Tips to Energize Your Painting Finish

I don’t often write about finishing paintings, but it’s something a lot of artists have questions on.

“How do you know when your painting is finished?”

There’s really no right or wrong way to answer this question.

I believe paintings are never “finished”, they just stop in interesting places!

I thought I’d share a little video with you, showing you some of the things I think about when I’m finishing my work, that might be helpful to you too…

Watch the video below to get finishing inspiration!

Finishing your painting is just one of the many phases of making paintings, but it’s a really important one…


Because if you don’t learn to trust yourself and make the final decisions, you won’t be finishing your paintings.


Watch this video to find finishing inspiration for YOUR work, and let me know what you think in the comments below.


Happy painting!



PS. If you want to learn more about ALL the phases in creating great artwork, and you’re ready to take your art to the next level, you can book a call with me to talk about my Art Mentoring program. Please don’t book a call if you’re just looking for free information… These calls are only for women who are ready to prioritize their art, invest in themselves, and live the rest of their lives as joyful, thriving artists. If that’s you, I’d love to talk with you. You can book your call here.

I love your work! I love your classes!
You have a wonderful imagination and I enjoy every minute I spend in watching and painting with you!
