I lived in Africa for
a couple of years,and was fascinated with the colours; Influenced by those warm tones, I still use them. Later in Brasil, I had the opportunity to meet a famous portuguese artist, Pedro Leitao, who showed me the right way to build up my skills, also studied porcelain painting.
Back in Portugal, Luis Guimaraes, a renowned oil portrait artist, was my next teacher. For five years ,he taught me the art and skills on oil painting. Proved to be a positive step in the right direction, for it enabled me to develop a good technique on painting and the use of colours.
Those five years showed the importance of my decision; I thank God for having done so.
Next, tried acrylic, and must say, enjoyed it straight away.
Adaptation to this new media was quick and easy. Presently,watercolour, is my "passion"!
I am absolutely passionate about it! Attended watercolour workshops with famous Masters, such as, Fabio Cembranelli ,Jean Haines, Liu Yi, George Politis. Developed interesting skills, learned some "secrets".
Painting is my very best and loyal "friend", always on my side...
