Artworks by Richard E Salazar II, Drawing Academy student
Hello and thank you for the Drawing Academy course.
As a child I dreamed of being an artist, but as I approached adulthood more and more people advised against it. I dismissed my dreams as unrealistic and put my sights on a “real” job. After that I rarely picked up a pencil to even doodle. 20 years later I found myself a stay-at-home dad with an opportunity to give art another try. I knew if I ever wanted to be a successful artist I needed to know how to draw.

Hi Drawing Academy tutors,
I’ve just registered and look forward to my journey on this art course.
Just to let you know I am a totally self-taught artist and have had no formal art training at all. As a child and young adult I found it quite easy to draw from my imagination but as I got older I started drawing from photos and now I’m even finding it quite difficult just to do that. I enjoy it but it takes me ages to create my artworks.
I’m just scared that I may not be able to break out of old bad habits like copying from photos.
Here’s one still-life I’ve done from life.
This is the story of hardships endured by women living in the dessert of Thar
This is a little still life I was playing around with color and forms.

I love doing landscapes. This is from the White Mountains in Nh. I chose a monochromatic color scheme that fit that cold shady path and frozen stream.
