This is my first attempt in a field of collages.:) It was a lot of fun to do it! I have 500 rubles (year 1912); I didn’t dare to cut it, but instead copied, enlarged and cut the image of a woman. I think, she represents an allegory of Russia. The phrase means – “The appearances of things are deceptive” (Latin). Thank you for the nice lesson, have a great day. Malvina James
Painting by Aranka Kocsis Tothne, Drawing Academy student
In September 2009 I started studying Art management. After my first painting lesson I realized that I didn’t want to sell other people’s paintings but to draw and paint.
In 2010, I took some drawing lessons and started painting portraits.
Now, I would like to share my father’s portrait, which I painted after becoming a member of the Web Art Academy…
Here is a landscape in ink. This beautiful scenery is only 20 minutes from our town. I always wanted to paint or draw it:) I finally started working on it…
Our town is surrounded by fields, and very often you can see abundant homesteads around. It is not exactly how it looks like though, I simplified it :) Malvina James

Portraits by Johann Krammer
There was time to draw in my vacation. After a short time, I recognized, that it was a big advantage, that my family did not want to be my models the whole time. So I had to speed up my sketchings and to focus on the essential points. There is a lot of fun to sketch with limited time!
I had some wooden model-hand with missing phalange on a ring finger and lemons. So, I arranged simple still life and tried to draw it in ink.
Drawing by Ronnie Rayner Larter
This drawing is of a windmill a few miles from my home. I completed a few days ago using the hatching technique. To create a sense of restfulness I used horizontal hatching for all buildings, trees and sky, but for the windmill I used cross-hatching, which I felt gave it a sense of solidity.
