Adventures with Art

14 Jan

Sometime last year, I started taking informal art lessons with one of my grandfather’s ex-students and grabbed my dad and cousin along with me.   It was my first foray into visual art, after having condemned myself in my lack of abilities following near-fail grades in school for Art.

He started us off with simple sketching exercises to teach us basic techniques and moved on to watercolour and oil painting basics. Now, I attend a still life session every Sunday to get my hands dirty in the lovely world of Art-making.  In my case, Art makes me.  I hope to post my works up once in a while, mainly to document my attempts in a chronological fashion.

Hopefully, there will come a day where I would no longer feel like I sully my artist grandfather’s name by saying that I – the one who can’t draw – was his offspring.
