UNIT 1: Discussion-Exposure to Art


#1

As far back as I can remember I have been drawing and coloring; earlier it was crayons and now it is acrylics and other pigments, however one thing hasn’t changed, i.e. my love for representing Nature in all its forms. When I see the play of shadow of a tree making interesting patterns or the myriad hues thrown from a rising sun, I itch to pick up my paints to capture it.
I mostly paint landscapes in acrylic on canvas, applying impressionist style. Although there is heavy demand for abstract art in the art market, but there is a small niche of people who love to see nature in action. I have sold a few of my paintings so there is a great encouragement for my future endeavors in pursuing my passion of art.
