One of my first memories is of me praying to be able to draw well. That was in kindergarten. It was years later that I had the opportunity to attend excellent art classes that taught me, above all, that
“Anyone can draw.”
I still hold true to that philosophy and like to incorporate it into my tutorials.
I’ve been doing art since the late 1990’s. My main area of interest was digital art for about a decade. I did book covers, illustrations and comic book colouring.
But not too long ago I felt that my work had become very rigid, so I switched back to traditional mediums. Graphite, Ink and watercolours really helped to bring a little life and movement to my work. It helps one think in a different way about how to approach the subject. If one applies watercolour techniques to digital painting, it brings a new dynamic to the piece. If one looks at a photo with inks in mind, it helps one define contrast areas, which can be useful when one ultimately does that same piece in watercolours.
I’m always on the lookout for new forms of art, albeit mosaics, murals, gardening and I hope to be able to attend a pottery class some day, as well as learn wood carving.
“There is always room for improvement.”
I hope that I will never say “I have arrived.” I hope that I will always strive to learn new mediums, techniques.
