Is beautiful to see how many people like paint pictures in all forms, with oil, acrylic, watercolor or simply to the charcoal drawing.
Are magnificent pictures where you can see their perspectives, shadows and brightness. How the painter is be able to melt down colors and to draw smiles in a faces or a tear on an eyes.
I wold will like drawing and painting like they. So I need to practice increasingly, but I have a big problem: I like to do some hobbies and I can’t to chose only one.
I’m fortunate because I have access to internet. Internet give you the opportunity to learn free. Some times I has been whole afternoons to watch videos one after another trying to learn a little bit more about how paint, take photos or play guitar very well.
I do that because I don’t have enough money to pay for a school, are too expensive. But I think that perhaps a day I get a trophy when I take a amazing photo, to draw awesome picture or I can to play a song.
The heat today is very strong, it makes I think too much.
