this painting just came to me as a surprise. It looks a lot better in person than it does in photo form.. :) The sea is way pretty, a mix of emerald green, topaz blue and dark blue occasionally mixed in. I tried to think of how the ocean here often looks and that’s not far from it.
Now why did the art teacher tell me I was no good at art, and I never would be any good at it, and stuff? Because clearly I am not terrible at it, this actually looks ok, and maybe with some lessons I could do even better..

That is a lovely use of color Snos. Lessons may do you some good, or they may do you harm. For now I would say go with your instincts and produce some more work before going in for formal lessons. As for the art teacher in your past, it sounds like you just had a crappy one, someone who couldn’t take the time to teach, only criticise and discourage. I think finding the right teacher is like finding the right gynecologist—you don’t just let anyone in there. So keep on painting. :)
I agree with the above commenter, you do have a genuine eye for color and the teacher was out of line. I think the painting is lovely.
