Folk Art - So Simple to Do

In older times, many house hold objects were painted by individuals who had no formal training, but simply for the joy in decorating the things that surrounded them. The colours and patterns in these old objects seem to reflect simple patterns and designs. Folk art is for everybody. The technique is simple and there are no hard and fast rules. Just paint something pretty. Any folk art magazines have lessons in a few basic techniques and they also have lots of designs and patters that you can copy. The key to success in doing folk art is your own individual style. While taking inspirating from the old designs, and colours, the charm of folk art is that you don't have to be perfect, in fact, it is preferable to keep the naivety with which you began. BOe creative without fear of failure.
