Featured course

Knowing how to use Color and Light in your artworks is one of the best skills to learn as an artist because it will help you take your artworks from good to great.

Key Takeaways

“Just look inside yourself when finding the true inspiration and don’t worry what the other people think. It’s about ‘what’ your painting is, instead of ‘how’ it is!”

  • Eeva is currently embarked on a lifelong journey of mastering the oil paints medium. She knows it’s a never-ending learning process and enjoys it very much
  • Eeva says about networking, that it’s bit scary, but if you think about it at the conventions there are people with the same interest so striking a conversation is fairly easy
  • Eeva wishes she knew how much work it would be to have her own business and it’s always better to be able to talk to likeminded people – other artists and business owners
