Feelings and emotions expressed through art

Hi

I painted this painting before I started the Drawing Academy course, I was supposed to draw and paint a candle, apple, and square. I was so focused on something else that I got a completely different result from the painting. I think this is a good example of expressing thoughts and emotions through art.

Paintings before and after the drawing course by Dipali Deshpande

HI,

This is Dipali Deshpande from Gurgaon, India and I’m feeling proud to say that I am a Drawing Academy student.

I started painting as a hobby in 2011, but used to feel scared when it comes to drawing. I was trying to learn to draw by watching YouTube videos and reading books. It did not work for me. I gave a try to some local institutes, but they focus on modern Indian art, which wasn’t my thing.

Ruins of Firoz Shah Kotla

During summer break I visited ‘Firoz shah Kotla’ which is one of the 7 ancient cities of Delhi. There I did some instant rough sketches on paper followed by drawing on canvas. After that I completed brown underpainting.

Now I see a future

Hi,

Before I enrolled in this course, I designed, but I did not know the anatomy for artists because I had not studied it. I used the grid method.

When searching the Internet for new techniques, I found Drawing Academy and I immediately realized that it would be the best choice for me.

I learned how to draw the right way. After that, I participated in some contemporary exhibitions using what I’ve learned from this course, creating works of art and I had tremendous satisfaction.

Drawing means everything for me. I hope with all my heart to become a full-time artist one day…

Drawing Acadwemy review by Batool Alsamani

Best guidance! Thank you

I always loved drawing but I never had the proper techniques to learn to master it. Every time I draw I know my drawing is filled with mistakes but I don’t know how to fix them. That is when I decided to look for a guidance from scratch. Gladly I came upon Drawing Academy and I immediately signed up.

It was enlightening, it gave everything I need step by step. I learned how to master classical art with the pencil, to measure the light and shadows and how draw from real life.

It was an amazing experience that I’d recommend to anyone who wants to have a thorough understanding of drawing.

Toned paper project

This is my attempt at the toned paper lesson – live drawings of two whale skeletons in a nearby museum. To give them proper scale, I chose a full sheet of 140 lb Arches paper split horizontally.

I wanted to convey the immense size of these creatures as best I could. I used masking fluid to provide stark contrast between the background and bones. I prefer the profile drawings over the earlier three quarter views, but I am glad I did them first as I learned much from them.

Story and artworks by Amrita, Drawing Academy graduate

Hi, my name is Amrita. I’m a designer and illustrator and having good drawing skills is very important for my career.

Despite receiving a diploma in animation, I actually didn’t get any education in fine art and was unable to do realistic drawings; I only had cartooning skills.

About two years ago I enrolled in the Drawing Academy course. This was a very smart decision because I was able to learn at home what was missing in my art education. I have learned how to draw portraits and figures, landscapes, and everything I want. Now I understand a human anatomy and have a good knowledge of body proportions. This enabled me to create realistic portraits and draw natural landscapes.
