Website Gave Me Confidence

From Lilly Antoneavic

Published on Friday, November 3, 2017


Dear Sir,

My name is Lillyana and I am freelance realist artist based in Melbourne in Australia.

I just visited your awesome website that gave me confidence to continue creating art in realistic style which I LOVE.

I used to go around and apologize to mostly my abstract loving teachers who repeatedly told me that realism is nothing special, anyone can do it, it is boring, and I might as well take a photo.

As result of this I gave up painting for decades.

I apologized for loving realism and admiring  Vermeer, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and many more classical painters.

After I saw your website, it gave me confidence that there is nothing wrong with realism, and my interest in this style is NO CRIME as some abstractionists wanted me to believe.

 I love ALL realism, especially Photo Realism which I am trying to perfect in my own paintings.

I specialize in portraits, both human and animal kind, I especially like to draw and paint cats, ALL cats, big and small.

I work in all mediums from pencil on paper to oil on canvas.

I just wanted to thank you for an EXCELLENT WEBSITE that gives hope to us realists out there.

Thank you for your time reading this email.

Sincerely Yours,

Lilly Antoneavic. xxx
