Artwork by Lalo Celi
I have always loved art. When I was a kid I used to draw all the time, but never worked with paintings until one of my daughters asked me to paint something for her. …
… I am self-taught, but I do understand that I need to learn from people who know and can teach the techniques that I admire from the masters, I need to learn from the best.
I want to learn the techniques of the masters, glazing, imprimatura. I have always admired artists like Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, and many other from that era.
I have seen the results from many of the Old Masters Academy students, and the evolution of their technique is amazing, it is what I want.
