New to the forum

Hey all,

My name is Ross and i am new to this forum.

I have always been extremely fascinated with art, but until recently, I never actually tried creating it myself. Throughout school as a child i would try and take art classes but never did art outside of school.

My favorite style of art and the style which i'd like to specialize in is Renaissance art. I love the realism and genius that goes into Renaissance art.

Some of my favorite artists are:

1: Vincent van Gogh- I love his work, i love the emotion he put into his art. I can definitely relate to Vincent van Gogh. I recently went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and saw one of his Sunflowers paintings, it blew me away.
2: Leonardo da Vinci- A true Renaissance man. His work is the primary inspiration of mine.
3: Rembrandt- In my opinion, his realism is as good as it gets.
4: Peter Paul Rubens: his historical and religious art is beautiful i can spend hours enjoying every detail.

The list never ends.

If anyone specializes in Renaissance art, please send me a message, i could use some advice.

Well, if you want to attain the level of those you mentioned, start working on it now, don`t even finish reading this post...get to it. Don`t forget...people laughed at Van Gogh but he didn`t give up so no matter what people say, you have to persevere...that to me is a true artist, if one seeks to get rich or please other people then they`d better become a lawyer or doctor. The notion of a starving artist may sound romantic but it isn`t to those who actually go through it.
