Painting by Juan Rames
I grew up in a remote village with access to art teachers and art schools. The first time I tried oil painting was about 5 years ago, when I moved to a city and found new friends among artists. My wife says I have art talent. She is very supportive and I think she likes my art, but I know how much I have to learn to paint professionally.
I found Old Masters Academy video lessons when searched youtube for painting tutorials. I think this one of the best art courses on the Internet that can teach me all I want to know about mixing colors, using layers and glazings. I have some art books about oil painting, but watching a master painting in front of my eyes is totally different experience. That is why I want to become an Old Masters Academy student.
