Hobby art is a great way to become a better artist. It’s the best form of self-training that there is. All top artists have one thing in common: they all practice their art and they are all hobby artists.
The more you practice, the more you’ll learn about your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll get better at finishing your work and you’ll get better at improving on ideas that have been done before. You’ll also learn how to deal with criticism and how to not take it personally.
All of these skills are very useful in the real world. And if you end up making money from your art, then that’s just an added bonus.
This Blog is about my journey through personal art development. From the basic tools and materials, to the creative process and how to overcome creative challenges.
I will be sharing personal work and knowledge, as well as useful tips that I have learned along the way.
I first started painting back in 2012 with acrylics and oils. I was self-taught up until a few weeks ago when I decided to start taking art seriously as a hobby. Since then I’ve been reading and learning as much as possible.
This blog is a small effort to help other artists overcome their challenges by sharing what I learn.**
Hobby art is about building a skill you are passionate about. It’s about learning how to make your drawings more captivating and more lively. And I’m here to show you that it’s completely possible to build a career around something like this.
The problem with most people is that they don’t know how to build a hobby into a career. They are afraid it will be too hard and will give up before they ever get started. But if you follow the steps in this blog, you’ll learn everything there is to know about turning your passion into a profitable business.”
So what exactly is art?
Art is a matter of perspective. The word itself can mean anything from the beautiful to the skillfully made. Art may be something that is shaped or colored; it may be a combination of sounds, words or images; it may also be simply a way of expressing feelings and emotions. Art could be defined as an image which stimulates emotions in the viewer.
The definition of art can vary from person to person. It all depends on one’s personal perception and experience in life. For some, art is something that they are passionate about and spend long hours creating. While for others, it might just be a hobby that they do in their spare time.
Truly great works of art bring out the best of creativity and craftsmanship, while allowing our imaginations to soar. An example would be Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “the Last Supper”, where each person’s personality shines through to create a unique work of art that captured Jesus’ final moments before his death on the cross.
So, let me tell you my story. How I started drawing and why I’m doing what I’m doing now.
I was born in a family of farmers in a small village near Russia’s borders with Ukraine and Belarus. It was an ordinary life until I entered college. My parents saw that I liked to draw and suggested that I study art in university. They didn’t have much money so they couldn’t send me to an art college but they believed in my talent and sent me to an ordinary university with an arts department.
I majored in architecture because it seemed like a good idea at the time. But the truth is that I was never serious about it. I just needed something to do while being in college so that my parents wouldn’t be disappointed. In fact, even if they’d had enough money for me to stay in college for another year or two, I wouldn’t have stayed there for long—I had no interest in architecture whatsoever, nor could I be bothered learning how to draw buildings well enough not to be laughed out by people who actually cared about those things. That was the beginning of my education as an artist: there were plenty of people around who were willing to teach me what they knew and show me their own work—from which I
