From a very early age, I have been interested in art. At school, I was
fortunate in having an art master who had exhibited watercolour paintings at The Royal Academy of Arts, London. He taught
me to a very advanced level and I endeavour to recollect all that I was taught whilst painting to this day. I hope I can pass
on some tips to others in a practical way. I am a hobby artist having received no professional training. My skill comes from
many years of experimentation in assorted mediums. This site will be devoted to examples of such works in all media. I hope
you enjoy it and will share your views and comments with me. Estudio Campana is here to be shared with anyone with a genuine
interest in any form of art. In the past, users have included family members of all ages, visting students and any casual
visitor that made that statement " I can't draw or paint! ".... and was proved so wrong. You can all do it.
In a way....."Art is what you see, how that vision inspires you and how you record it. Sometimes, it just happens!"
Choice of subject matter, composition, use of light and the choice of medium to record your work.... all play
a big part in success. Start now...give it a try.
Apart from using paints, brushes and an assortment
of implements, I also indulge in photography. ( 35mm, Digital, still and video.... with an assortment of cameras.
) I have exhibited works in all artistic mediums in UK, Germany, USA and Spain and much to my delight, won prizes!
