1-Picking a Concept
A good painter begins with a strong concept.
As you look around, what grabs your attention, find something that excites you. Why did it grab your attention? What about this view has attracted you. The answer will be a concept usually suggested by the subject itself. Move on if nothing has caught your eye.
