I have to confess.. That even for me, the self-proclaimed professional mud slinger with hardly a stain on his shoes, is finding it increasingly

So to conclude, if you can go through this class comfortably in front of a mirror, paint away.
And if you can't, repeat steps over and over until you can. If you are still having trouble, put the brush down and find a new hobby.
