art lover
I am very interested in art and I visit museums and art galleries as often as possible. I can’t collect artefacts because I am not rich enough but I buy a lot of books on the history of art. I prefer realistic to abstract art but I do not mind if it is classic or modern. I also like drawing and I am said to be talented. I am especially good at sketching portraits and caricatures. I want to study at the Academy of Fine Arts and work as a graphic designer or an illustrator in the future.

work of art
I went to New York last holiday. I did a lot of sightseeing there but the most interesting place was the Metropolitan Museum. I was really impressed by the number of masterpieces they have in their collection. I was able to see Egyptian murals, Greek ceramics, Roman busts and bas-reliefs. They have a magnificent collection of paintings of old masters such as Rubens or Rembrandt. I could also admire works of art from my favourite period, which is Impressionism. Everybody can find there something for himself as the masterpieces represent almost all known techniques. There are not only paintings and sculptures but also engravings, mosaics or tapestries.

painting, picture
I want to be a painter in the future. I have already found a private teacher who can teach me how to paint. I have bought an easel, canvas and a few picture frames. I know I have to begin with something simple so I will probably use pastels, charcoal or ink at the beginning. I have made some sketches of still life and I am quite satisfied with them. Nevertheless, I would rather paint portraits or landscapes in the future. I want to understand what a good painting is, what should be painted in the foreground and what in the background. I would like to be able to depict the nature in the similar way to the Romantic masters. Perhaps my expectations are too great but I will try to do my best.
