My first oil painting
Exactly a year ago if someone would tell me that you could paint I would tell them that I am not even capable of drawing a straight line (furthermore to paint) and would laugh at them.
When I decided to close the bookshop and I was trying to find something to keep me occupied, I inquired at the Cultural Centre of my neighborhood and the choices I had were folklore dancing, painting, theatre and making puppets. From the four choices I had I preferred paining.
At the beginning everything seemed very difficult but with the techniques they showed us I am now proud to show off the results of my efforts.The most important thing I learnt during the lessons was to be patient and to look carefully at all the objects and try to distinguish the lines and the shadows.So, if this is something you like as a hobby do not hesitate to try it. You will be surprised by your skills!!!
The lessons for this year have started. I had my first lesson in painting last week and Byzantine painting will start next week. So it will take some time until I have something new ready.
