Artwork by Dona
I have painted my whole life whenever I could between raising my son and work. Recently, I have been able to do painting again but I still want to be able to paint daily. I dream of painting for a living and get to a place where I can sell paintings in a gallery.
As far as taking classes — the internet has been a wonderful tool for my advancement but more of a piecemeal approach and with no feedback. I know having a teacher who can guide my advancing to where I want to go is priceless. I am excited to possibly win a contest with Old Masters Academy.
What do I want to learn? Everything I don’t know! But mostly I have been struggling with glazing.
Artistically I want to learn classical painting like the old masters and get faster. I do tend to be more realistic in my approach which is why I am looking into the Old Masters Academy. Where I live doesn’t allow me to find any teachers nearby that I can learn from on a regular schedule.
I know I will get solid training with your Academy. I don’t have many years left to paint so this would be wonderful.
