Art is a Conversation with Yourself
I have been drawing off and on for some years. until recently I started getting into painting and different medias. And realize art has endless opportunities, and that is what keeps my drive for art to keep going.
I want to win the Drawing Academy course to better myself and my art so I could become more comfortable with putting my art out there as well as making it a source of income.
I am a retired professional engineer and have comparatively recently taken up art again. From childhood I have been interested in art and have just found a watercolour I did at age 10, and think it shows some understanding of the effects of light on a subject.
At school I ‘did’ art but completely opted out after my English/Art teacher aggressively criticised something I was working on.
Beautiful Trees in Kenya
I began painting 10years ago. I fell in love with Art while I was in Rome. I visited the Vatican and Trevi Fountain. After which I flew to Paris and visited The Lourve. I have travelled a many places while I was in the Airline Industry.
Every image tells a story
I am a retired professional graphic designer and illustrator. Over the fifty years I worked in that profession I worked to create illustrations that sold a product or told a story. After retiring continued to paint images that allowed my viewer to write their own story as that looked at each of my paintings.
My Artist Wants Out
Art has always been a part of my life. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. My great uncle was a wood worker, both of my parents can draw and all of my brothers and sisters can draw. When I was around 13 or 14, my father brought home a book he had picked up in Florida. It was “Faeries” by Alan Lee and Brian Froud. I was completely hooked! This book indulged my curiosity and lit a fire inside of me. I drew from that book religiously. However, I could never render my own images as well. I still can’t.
A 100 for Bruce, inspired on sharing the knowledge with all human beings!
I am an art and film lover, I have been painting since I was a little girl. Art is part of my life and yet I feel I will be always learning something new.
I am 85 years young, a self taught artist largely. I like drawing faces. And I am presently enthralled with the color theory lessons of the Old Masters course and eager to apply. What a unique find!
The Seven Shadows of Man
I’m a 38 old artist from St. Louis Missouri. I have been an artist since I can remember as a child. Recently I lost two of my 6-foot pieces of art in the floods that came in Arkansas, and I am trying to rebuild my art.
When I walk in my garden
Art is all my life, the challenge is to express my feelings with high level of quality drawing. I want to learn old drawing and paintings techniques.
