Art by Alexis Calabresewww.ArtPal.com/lex66c
I started an art class age 36. I was interested in how to do portraits. After a few years of going twice a week my tutor suggested I do an art course at college. I did three terms studying fine art. I learned a lot about artists and their practice, and my technique developed there. I am now studying fine art at University and am on my first year of a 3 year course. People and the human condition is what most intetests me, and that is why I love portraits. Most of the work I have done has been with pro marker pens,the reason being while I was at college I used to work in the canteen and I found I could make my drawings look like paintings with these pens, also I like working in coffee shops and public places so they are practical. I can paint and want to do so on a large scale where I can do life size figures.
