You know you are only a beginning artist, but you feel there's more talent inside you than you've been able to show so far.
And it's been poking and prodding your insides to do something about that.
To set it free.
To develop it.
To let it learn how to create the kind of work it dreams of creating.
It knows it is still raw talent. And it's not quite sure just how much is there.
But it truly feels it is capable of so much more.
Yes, it has produced some pretty pictures and promising drawings.
And it's been very grateful for the compliments from friends and family.
At least until now.
Yes, their support has been great.
It's just that the compliments of friends and family are not quite enough any more.
Now your talent yearns to be more than just a beginning artist.
It wants to be an artist.
And it feels it can become one if it can just find the right teacher.
But with all the stuff on (and off) the internet, how do you figure out who that teacher should be?
Well, you are not alone with these concerns.
At the same time there is an old saying that goes, "When the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear."
For those that are ready, BeginningArtist.com strives to be that teacher.
"The mission of Beginning Artist.com is to teach every beginning artist how to make art more easily, more creatively and more confidently."
More easily, because aspiring artists through inexperience too often make art much more complicated than it needs to be.
More creatively, because I'm willing to bet you too often limit yourself to only what you see in a photograph.
More confidently, because nothing frees your innate talent and creativity like learning how to successfully push beyond what you've already done.
Salvador Barajas of San Diego, California learned how true that is.
"Gary, you've given me the direction and instruction that has improved the quality of my work tremendously. I highly recommend your instruction to anyone who wishes to produce outstanding work."
BeginningArtist.com founder Gary Gumble brings a wealth of experience to the task of turning aspiring artists into artists.
More than 45 years experience in three different fields of art to be exact.
And during all those years he's seen over and over that it doesn't matter what medium you use or what subject you like to draw or paint.
You only grow your talent when you begin to learn and use the basic skills that are the foundation of all good art.
The basic skills that good artists use over and over and over in their work and that beginning artists often overlook in their mad rush to start creating art.
It is these basic skills that allow you to draw or paint almost anything you choose.
It is these basic skills and the years spent developing them that Gary writes about in his weekly blog posts.
