Artwork by Linda Hauser
As a child, I spent part of my summers on the picnic table, drawing and painting with any supplies I could find. I used #2 pencils, crayons, cheap water colors of the type that came in those plastic containers with 6 or so colors, and the oil paints that came packaged in paint by numbers kits.
As an adult, I began to take an occaisional workshop or class through the local Student Art League, quite sporadically, over the next few decades….I have gone as long as 10 years without picking up a brush….I am finally at a point in my life where I can finally dedicate time and effort to learn, improve and create art. I am most inspired by places, people, or things I have experienced and have recently painted some works en plein air.
I want to learn the traditional techniques to further improve my painting skills in brushwork, composition, observation and color theory.
I am self-taught with a few classes over the years and think this course is the next best alternative to attending an atelier by offering great content and flexibility.
In addition to liking my paintings, I would like folks to vote for me because they see potential with more formal training.
