Drawing was not my purpose and especially it was not the center of my universe, drawing was easy for me. When I decided to go to art school in high school, it turned out that I could not draw plastic apples, and even in a dark room, which was very different from how I was used to. This ended my professional art education, and it took only three days.
I became an engineer and worked a lot in my professional field. But over time I realized that working 10-12 hours a day, I do not see the result of my work. Then there was a desire to work for myself, and in January 2015, I became a free artist. Then six months later I discovered watercolor.
I was constantly studying: I started with free lessons on Youtube, then watched master classes of successful artists. I had to sort out a lot of books on my own to study the perspective, value, shape, lighting and improve the picture. And, of course, I drew every day.
My talent is in the ability to learn quickly, and I try to develop this skill. No one is born a genius, for a good result you need a lot of work.
