Artwork by Elizabeth
For the past 2 years I’ve been drawing and I’ve grown a lot and have truly become a better artist in every way. Art is what I want to do in the future whether it’s just hobby or my full time job, it’s something that I want to do as long as I live.
The biggest challenge as an artist is motivation and artist blocks. Often times I find myself sitting at my desk with a blank canvas and a blank mind. I can’t seem to push myself to create enough and when I do, I don’t know what to make. I spend hours scouring the internet to find pictures or inspiration.
This artwork is a mixture of cubism and realism. Its made up of two cuts of my face and patterns from my home country, so this artwork is personal and has a lot of meaning. I hope that people would enjoy it and vote for the art I have put out.
My biggest goal is to learn how to use oil paints as it is a fairly new medium for me. But most importantly I want to improve my skills in portrait painting.
I created an account for Old Masters academy hoping that one day I would be able to afford the membership, which isn’t easy as a student. I’ve heard great things about it and I believe that it could be the perfect place for me to refine my skills. The Old Masters Academy course would help me a lot with my creative blocks but most importantly it would help me learn from highly qualified people.
