Artwork by Marcelo
When I was a child I was amazed how my cousin was able to draw everything he imagined.
I lack those innate skills he had and now at my 41 yrs I started my artistic journey in the seek for express myself.
I am an IT developer, father of two sons, living in Uruguay (my mother tongue is Spanish).
I bought art books on how to draw, I seek information at YouTube to start painting, from those videos I have learned some things that have allowed me to paint a couple of things and entering this course. Now I am entering this competition fascinated by the results they promise and the amazing reviews the academy has worldwide.
I want to learn how to paint what I see but also to paint some ideas, I have wrote several poems that I wish I can paint, those images does not exist in reality but I want them to become real.
Art is allowing me say things I cannot say or would not say, it let me study the things at my surroundings, it has taught me how to look, see and appreciate some things, it has given me a different concept of beauty.
I want to win the course because so far I cannot afford its cost, otherwise I would be already a student.
I don’t know why should people vote for me, maybe if they see my paint and think it is a good starting point to move forward and give me that chance.
I think Old Masters Academy is a great place to learn, the intro videos and thematic lists suggests so, also there are hundreds of online reviews recommending this amazing course.
