It would be quite handy if you brought a painting that you like which you would use as an inspiration for your new art work. The secret is that if you are painting something that you really like you will enjoy it and you’ll be successful with that painting. As a sample you can use a photography, print of a painting or a rendering from a book. A theme you can use a countryside, portrait, copy of a famous painting, a photo from a holiday or an old family picture. Your painting can be focused on a detail or you can repaint the whole picture, the choice is up to you. We recommend bringing a printed picture on a paper as it is not ideal to you a phone or a laptop.
