Artwork by Chantal Gadeix
Art at heart
Well, I’m Chantal, French and retired from teaching English. I now have some spare time and spend quite a lot of it trying to get better at drawing and painting watercolour. I’m a hard worker, so that I study, read, practice, etc..
My challenge is to become an accomplished artist. I’d like to be able to draw and paint any subject. I’m especially fond of portraits, but I can still progress and I love painting city scenes and landscapes, to which I nearly always integrate people.
From the demos and explanations I’ve read, I think the Drawing Academy is exactly the tool that might be useful to help me become a better painter. That’s why I’d like to win. People should vote for me if they like what I do, and if they think my work could do with a boost to become really good.
