Old man to Old Master
Story and artwork from Tony Vivirito
I’m a southerner and like most of them I spend a lot of time out doors. I have been fishing and hunting all of my life both for the excitement but as I look deeper for the beauty of them and their environment.
Drawing and painting has been a passion in my life from childhood as I loved coloring books.
To capture the beauty of an object, person or place has been an obsession.
The most rewarding to me is “likeness”. The old master captured those likenesses in such grand manner being the reason they are so treasured and popular today.
The Drawing Academy employs those ideals in their courses. Each critique I read adds to my recognition as to why they are correct.
Winning the course would give me the details and direction I am missing to achieve the level I want to be at in art.
I am dedicated to art and have been for over 60 years. Voting for me would be kind, considerate and return to them the “Old masters” style of art that is loved throughout the world.
