At the last of the minutes... one of member was giving a massage saying that he don't want to involve. So i was feeling very frusted because i got that that news when i just taking some money from bank to pay the fee. So i decided to walk around Johor Bahru City without any meaning. Just walk wherever my legs want to go until i met one veteran artist. I'm introducing myself and ask either he do an art class or not. He is Ismail Attan. He said 'if u really want to learn, just come here and bring all your tools'.
The next week, I came and bring all my tools. Easal, drawing board, pencils etc. The first thing i asked him to teach me is potrait sketch. His way to teach was very simple. He said 'jus do it...i'll guie u from time to time'. So i started to do the sketch. Taking photo from newspaper and do it in pencil sketch. Day by day i became enjoy even i only go to his place at weekend.
I'm not only learning about art. I also learnt how to comunicate. Because his place is an open space so we met different people every day.
One month after, i got my first potrait order. Those day i charge in very cheap price. Only MYR20.00 per head. I was feeling so happy and the order was continous. My parctice became more harder. When i had a difficulty, Ismail will help with his comment. So i learnt to absorb he comment and apply it into my sketch.
I love to do watercolor painting but for the first 3 month, i did focus only on Black n Whit portait sketch. I believed, whatever we want to do, do focus on one thing until u become expert and then u could go to the next thing.
