Drawing is a base of painting

When I was young, I had classes in a school of art. It was long time ago (about 45 years) and it was a different country – Soviet Union. I did not made my way as a painter, but those lessons of drawing, composition and history of art gave me knowledge, understanding and profound love to fine arts. I did not practice painting, but occasionally did drawings and watercolor works. Just about two years ago I found a lot of classes and lessons on oil painting on YouTube. It is awesome!

I have been an artist ever since I can remember. I attended Mastbaum Vocational High School in Philadelphia where I studied commercial art. After 4 years in the USAF I was employed by General Electric Missile & Space Division in Valley Forge Pa. as a publications specialist. Eventually I was named as Art Director for the Missile & Space Division’s magazine, “Challenge”. After 20 years with GE I owned a restaurant for 20 years. I continued doing freelance art work after I retired. Too busy earning a living I never had time to become proficient in fine art.

Although I am 82 years old I am still active and now have time to learn more in painting. I have done portraits for friends and family but I would like to improve my skills.

A Knight: putting others’ needs first

I am Ekundayo Femi, a beginner self-taught artist & an aspiring 3D Animator from a remote town in the South-Western part of Nigeria.

I was so obsessed with ART as a kid when 2D Animation & Newspaper Cartoons were still the norm of the day. I could remember, I drew a portrait which I was so proud of regardless how it turned out.

With time, artist blocks set in, forcing me to believe only the talented could do it right; until a year ago when I read a blog post which addressed this issue & also revived the artist in me.

Trying to find my niche!

Life moves fast. One moment I was in high school not realizing the opportunities and meaning of pursuing my dream. The next thing I knew, I was a mom of a 20-year-old son, a ranch wife and a business owner. As life would have it, I had the opportunity to take a single drawing class at a local college and the spark that had once been lit was once again on fire! I feel I have something to say or show and my skills are not yet honed enough to express myself as I want! I would like to leave a legacy – something that means something to someone.

Innkira Art Drawing

I’m Innkira, this is my art-name.

I used to love art since I was a little girl; unfortunately, in my country I couldn’t draw that much, but my passion for art is growing day by day. I’m curious and always thirsty for art.

As a little child I used to go to an abandoned house nearby. When I entered that house for the first time, I remember that I took some white papers hung them on the wall and, with help of my imagination, I saw myself as an artist at his first gallery. It was the best moment in my life. I used to dream about living that day in reality after studying art at a real academy.

My dream

Hello, I am 69 years old and I always had a burning desire to draw. I was drawing circles, cups, and crazy items without even realizing I was doing it, especially when I used to work. My co-workers told me “not bad” and I would get embarrassed.

Now that I have retired, I find myself drawing a lot! Mostly portrait art and I come very close to a person I am drawing (so they say) and I love it.

I wanted to become an artist to make composite police sketches to portraits to better identify the criminals. I have a stroke and started drawing again as time healed me.

Drawing makes me feel good and to learn how other artists create artworks, I went to an art school. My challenges in drawing is shading and blending and getting proportions right; after 17 years I still can’t eye ball it.

Drawing Academy is a great place for a beginning artist to pick up some good tips.

Kari Contemplating Life

I am a seventy-six year old woman who lives in the country surrounded by beautiful mountains.

I have had no formal art training. I am self taught in many mediums but my favorite would have to be water colors. I have been painting with different mediums for over 40 years. Paintings as small as a 2 inch square and as large as a wall. Some were sold but most were given to family members and close friends.
