Time-lapse colored pencils - The myths about being an Artist

in dlive •  2 months ago

I am pleasantly surprised with your post. At this moment in my life, I feel very identified with everything you express. I started a little over a week ago in steemit and in my second article I share the fact that I made the decision (at 36 years old) to develop the talent of drawing after not having allowed it for many years. Since I was a little girl I showed certain aptitudes for drawing but as I grew up I left it aside even though I dreamed of being an artist and doing beautiful and talented works. But I did not continue by:

  1. The social conventions of which you just spoke, in fact I studied 2 university degrees that I have exercised at the time with satisfaction, but of which I do not live today, because I made the decision to follow my heart and devote myself to what I really love. Thank God I have been blessed to be able to live on it!

  2. As a young woman I did not dare to continue in the drawing because I did not consider myself talented enough as other artists, because I was not born with such prodigiousness that I would allow myself a brushstroke to make a tremendous portrait or a great work of art. How wrong I was! for talent is something that develops with constant practice and patience. I discovered it over the years because I am an artisan and I have seen how thanks to the years and experience today I create beautiful pieces and I can see my progress since I incised. This shows me that all talent can be developed.

I'm very happy to find people who are on this same frequency! Your words fill my heart with emotion, just today I decided to take the path to develop my skills for drawing and be a talented artist.

Thank you!
