There are plenty of easy tutorials for beginners that can be done without expensive supplies or previous experience. Here are five easy painting ideas that you can find tons of inspiration and examples of online. Just grab a brush and get to it!

1. Sunsets

From warm and sunny scenes to cool and dark evening skies, sunsets are the perfect way to get color on a page without having to be especially precise with your strokes. It's hard to go wrong with a sunset!

2. Mountains

They can be simple as a dark silhouette over a bright sky, or a bit more detailed with foliage and perhaps something like a waterfall.

4. Patterns/Designs/Etc.

5. Whatever your heart desire

If you have something in mind, give it a try! There might not be a tutorial for it out there, and it might not be perfect right away, but that doesn't mean that you can't have fun with it. With a little practice, you'll find yourself getting a lot better.
