Online Fine Art Instruction in Drawing, Painting, Pastel, Charcoal, and Lessons in Color Theory, Space and Composition
What I Believe/Don't Believe About Art: - "Talent" is basically a myth. I believe that sensitivity, inspiration, hard work and conviction are much more important in producing quality work. - Neatness and speed do not count in art. - Being original really means being/becoming yourself. - There is no limit to what can be learned - it is a life-long process. - There are as many viewpoints in art as there are human beings. - There is no one, right way to make art. - There are rules in art to be followed - however, for every rule I've ever heard, I've seen a great work of art that is the exception. - The entire universe is potential subject matter for art. Practical Tips: Relax: inspiring music, comfortable clothes and chair. Wear clothes that you're not afraid of getting dirty. Look at other art - galleries, museums, books, art centers. Carry a sketchbook everywhere, for at least 1 year. Welcome to my online studio! I've been an artist for many years, and I feel that art is a vital part of our lives. etc.
