Painting by Juan Rames
I grew up in a remote village with no access to art teachers or art schools. The first time I tried oil painting was about five 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 was searching youtube for painting tutorials. I think this is 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.
Please give me your support and vote for me. I just can’t say enough how much I want to win this competition to finally learn the secrets of the masters!
