Portrait of my Anja

Portrait of my Anja

Portrait by Zora, Drawing Academy student

My elementary school art teacher paid attention only to those who could already draw and paint. This hurt me; I was overlooked and felt invisible. So, I lived all these years believing that I could not draw or paint. Every time I looked at a painting I found interesting, I felt a desire to be able to create something, anything.

A few years ago, my husband brought me a cherry flower branch that was so beautiful, I immediately sat down and painted it in watercolors. I thought that such a burning desire to paint and such a beautiful subject should result in a beautiful painting. I could not have been more disappointed – it was difficult and as much as I tried, it just got worse. It was clear to me that if I wanted to create a painting that I would be satisfied with, I had to find some help.

I looked around for an art group in my local community but soon felt intimidated because I did not have any knowledge of where to begin. So, I bought myself some books and videos, looked for videos on YouTube and started educating myself. I got better and better. However, I soon discovered that I lacked the basic skill – the drawing skill – needed to create any form of art. So, I bought more books about drawing. I soon became bored with explanations that I could not really understand.

That was until I came across the Drawing Academy program. The whole world opened to me. I am still in the first-month lesson plan, going very slowly, but I already have a feeling that I’m heading in the right direction – from not being able to draw a circle or oval or straight line to this drawing of my daughter Anja, which I created during the last Christmas holidays. Not so long ago, drawing a recognizable portrait seemed like a dream.

The Drawing Academy course gave me the motivation to persist and, after completing this course, to apply for the Anatomy course.

I hope my story will encourage people similar to me to join the Drawing Academy and experience the satisfaction of progressing in what you so long to do.

I wish I had come across the Drawing Academy much earlier.

    What a gorgeous daughter and portrait. Well done.

    I had an art teacher like that too. It kept me from painting for 40 years.
