Art by Richard Langley
I used to be good at drawing, but my school did not offer art tutoring of any kind, so my natural talent was not developed from the childhood. In spite of this, I wen to a local art school hoping for a better guidance, yet our art teachers only gave us assignments and spent a minute or two critiquing our work. Looking back, I just think how much time has been lost and how my art wold be different should I have proper art education from beginning.
I consider myself a self-taught artist. Every time I visit a museum, I feel an urge to paint and draw. I just want to make great masterpieces the old masters were able to create.
I know there is a lot to learn and that is why I want to win the Old Masters Academy course. I invest my time and money in workshops wherever they may be. I have even considered traveling to Italy just to soak in the architecture and art. I have fallen in love with drawing so much that I’d love to make a career change.
