Never been taught to paint. I paint to express and distract and organize my thoughts and this helps so much with my bipolar and body pain. I don't copy pictures I see something or think something and then paint it just from my heart so no accuracy or technical correctness whatsoever.
Just a thought and painting done at 4am.....
I love just painting a face and making a character appear. Often do this when im triggered or upset or feeling intense. It helps me release my feelings safely.
