Artists are as diverse and varied as they come, not only in experience (or lack thereof), but style and attitude, yet many things are shared, from meditative time alone to a mutual love for aesthetics and the cathartic feelings that stem from purging our imaginations and desires onto a sheet of paper or canvas
The beauty of art is that it can be picked up at any age. If art looks magical to a beginner then that's probably because they never spent any real time painting or drawing since leaving school. The process of seeing can be mastered by all, and seeing is the key to drawing and sketching, and drawing/sketching the key to using any medium. Drawing largely amounts to measuring, coordinating the hand to interpret a representation seen by the eyes. The more accurate those measurements, the more like the subject that drawing will resemble (true, it can be easier said than done!). The basic skills learnt correctly can lead you towards your goals be it striving for photorealism, expressionism, impressionism or anything inbetween. A knowledge of anatomy, perspective and form can also prove essential to enhancing your art (whether from life or from a photo reference) and improve drawing from imagination.
When learning any new skill, it takes years to start gaining any sort of mastery of it, and even then there will always be new things to learn, and frustrations to overcome. Even the greatest and oldest of artists will usually attest to the persistently challenging nature of drawing and painting: understanding you are not alone in this may lead to less frustration. Practice, patience and persistence will pay dividends, and we sincerely hope this website will help you achieve some of your own personal targets, and certain lessons will inspire you to become the best artist you are capable of becoming.
the right art instruction and background reading, combined with astute observation anybody can develop as a proficient self-taught artist. This website is geared to developing and harnessing both the latent skills of beginners, and those with some experience behind them (whether self-taught or a student of art). Primarily the in-depth and structured art demonstrations and instructions are represented through the series of unique multimedia titles, combining video, animation, and photographs with careful and thorough descriptions of each stage. Also provided are a set of completely free art tutorials, and whilst not representative of the commercial products, they are written to a high standard and it is my intention that they serve as a means to develop, aid and instruct others interested in producing and creating art.
