Artwork by Yasmeen Shaikh
There is always something to learn from every artist
Art helps us express our emotions & feelings on canvas. I am a self taught novice. As a child my parents didn’t have enough money to send me to a special elementary class for children with artistic capabilities though my school teachers had suggested it. Lack of money always pricked me, reminding me that even skills you wish to develop come at a price. Recently however I shelled out some money and decided to pursue my hobby rather my childhood dream. I bought canvas, oil paint, easel, brushes etc all the basics needed to start painting. Uploaded is a sample of my first oil on canvas still life painting.
Since I am just starting off, I have come to a realization that there are a lot of techniques, terminologies, methods to learn. For example i didn’t know there is something call “Dead color” painting until I read and watched a video about it on Web Art Academy. I have watched videos and I strongly feel that the artists bring life on canvas and there is so much to learn from them.
I would like to win the Drawing Academy course to pursue and become an artist who can paint and draw like professionals.
I would like all artists, aspiring artists, members and art lovers to vote for me. It would be an honor to be a student of Drawing Academy and hone my skill with the help of talented professionals.
