Artwork by Cecile de Villiers
I am an engineer and artist from Cape Town South Africa.
My love for creating art started in school. I especially loved the technical drawing class where I learned how to render a three-dimensional object on a flat surface.
From 2008 to 2017 I took Sculpting art classes combining my love for art and engineering. However, at the end of 2016 I did an Old masters oil painting workshop at the local atelier/art shop and I rediscovered by love for colour and painting; since that day I have to paint, like I have to breathe.
My main challenge is technical oil painting skills. I would love to learn about glazing, drawing and composition.
I have not formally studied art and therefore think that the Old Masters Academy would be an excellent way to expand my knowledge and creative expertise as our local art market is small and world class courses like the ones the Old Masters Academy offer are rare to find.
I absolutely love the style of the old masters and would love to win the Old Masters Academy Course!
Please vote for me: I am committed to learn as much as I can to better my work and to inspire and give joy through my work and dedication.
