Gain New Skills and Confidence!
Learn the three strategies and watch your confidence soar through the roof.
How Can Richie Help You Boost Your Confidence As A Painter?
Richie himself put it best:
“If you don’t believe in your work, who does?”
If you have low confidence in your skills and results, it will show. Low confidence is visible in your finished paintings — but probably even more importantly, it shows in your painting process.
Without self-confidence, you can’t make bold moves. You don’t dare to try something new.
Instead, you hold back. Your paintings look restrained and stiff. Plus, you have a hard time enjoying yourself while painting.
Remember that confidence comes from being confident in your ability and your process.
Richie is bold in his paintings as well as in his teaching. In many ways, he’s a maverick.
And he’ll show you how you can unleash your inner potential by mastering the foundations first and knowing exactly what to do in each step of the process.
