Where do I Start? August 21, 2007

“Where do I start?” is one question often asked by aspiring artists who have a strong urge to give expression to their latent talent, but lack the resources and the guidance to move on and explore.

Well, they say you can only start where you are and the more serious you are farther you will travel and that the very interest will make available to you opprtunities and resources necessary for its fulfilment. Sounds a bit mystical? True this may be, truer still is the difficulties and uncertainties facing a serious student of art, if he is pressed for time and art is not his full-time pursuit. And to this breed comes the rescue of the power of the Internet presenting it with an inexhaustible compilation of resources necessary for growth.

Ujwala, whose name I chanced upon in my own pursuit of art resources, I found, is an artist who has travelled the long    distance and has made life easier for artist aspirants. Read his ‘Where do I start”‘ post here: http://drawtheline.wordpress.com/where-do-i-begin/

Now take the plunge and enjoy!
