For the most part, most artists are pretty giving and willing to share whatever techniques they’re doing or using… It’s like a bunch of magicians getting together and saying, “aha!, see, this is my rabbit!”. Steven S. Walker on The Artful Painter podcast Love this analogy. And Steven paints phenomenal paintings too.
Instead of fretting about style, rather focus on the core techniques of good painting. Style tends to take care of itself in the process. Malcolm Dewey, Loosen Up Your Painting Podcast I’ve only listened to a couple of episodes of this podcast, but it seems like it’s going to be pretty helpful.
