Max Sibenius Trip
The many sides and Loves of a Retiree!
Hi, my name is Max Sibenius Trip, 79 years old Retiree of Dutch origin and live in Australia with my Scottish wife Isobel.
In 1997, I had my first encounter with the Art World, joining a local Art Group, learning Drawing and Painting Techniques from local Artists.
The introduction to Pastels in 2000 was a totally new direction. This instantaneous line and colour of unfading freshness and intensity was the start of a new beginning! Since than my Pastels have received various Awards in exhibitions and shows, mainly landscapes and the odd animal paintings.
Isobel and I have 4 Grand Children and at this stage of life would love to create Pastel Portraits!
While surfing the net, I stumbled on this Drawing Academy website and downloaded a free “How to Draw a Portrait” just what I needed!
“A Retiree’s life is full of surprises.”
Over the years my Pastel Painting has been some what neglected due to my other loves of Gardening and the Classical Guitar study.
This opportunity to win a Drawing Academy course would be a way to enable to paint Portraits of my Grand Children like “The Dutch Masters”.
Of Course for this to happen it would depend on your “The peoples” vote
