Aljosa V.
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Exactly one year ago, on the 28th of February 2010, I took courage and decided it was high time to realize one of my biggest dreams: the art of drawing and painting. For some this may not sound like anything worth loosing sleep over, but merely a matter of sitting down and digging into art books, or hooking up with a tutor. I must admit I went through a great deal of hesitation and doubt before I took up that pencil and made my first few doodles because in elementary school I had been indoctrinated by a few teachers into believing that me and art just don't go along very well. Also, I had a distorted notion about the process of drawing and painting. I thought making a picture was somewhat similar to wizardry and only people with special talent (that can't be learned) can be good in art -- at least that's what teachers had made me believe.

Luckily, with some encouragement from my girlfriend and my mother, and with the help of online drawing lessons on Drawspace website I managed to overcome my fears and began drawing my first awkward and insecure lines. Eventually, I gained enough confidence to began experimenting with different techniques and media. Then something happened I hadn't thought possible ... I fell in love with drawing & painting! The process of drawing became a means of relaxation and fulfillment.

Today, 365 days later, I feel grateful that I undertook this challenge. Every picture I make brings me deep fulfillment of my creative desires. With each line I make I learn something new and gain insight into magic world of art. I'm still only a beginner compared to some really great artists here; the learning process is never-ending, but I'm no longer afraid to grab a pencil, or a brush.

Here are some pictures. The first one is my first drawing (after elementary school (~ 15 years ago)) made on the  28th of February 2010. The rest were made almost a year after the first one.

My first rookie doodle by agapetos Bird of Passage by agapetos van Gogh's Still Life by agapetos Leather Boots by agapetos

Happy 1st art birthday to me! :-)
