Hello. My name is Lucas. I am a 1st year TALONS student.
This year, I chose to learn acrylic painting for my In-Depth project. I chose to learn to paint because I wanted to be a better artist. I could never draw, or paint and I wanted to be able to. It also seemed like a fairly basic skill. I had watched enough Bob Ross videos to know how simple painting could be. But let me tell you, he makes it look a lot easier than it really is.
I had expected painting to be a fairly easy skill and depending on what you paint it can be. But I was actively challenged to make new and more complex paintings. Overall, I had a lot of fun learning to paint and I would encourage you to as well. It makes a great hobby and I plan to keep painting even after the end of In-Depth.
I have compiled all of my paintings into a “virtual art gallery”. I hope you enjoy my art!
