I follow painting as my hobby. My parents spotted my talent for drawing and colouring when I was very young, and they have encouraged me in my chosen hobby.
At first started with pencil colours and crayons. When I grew better with those, I moved on to water-colourpainting. Now my new passion is painting with oil colours.
When I am painting, I forget the world. I love to look at a blank canvas or sheet of paper and imagine what I am going to paint on it. I usually paint landscapes and seascapes, but sometimes I paint portraits of people also.
Everyone praises my paintings, and I feel very good when I here them. I have also won several prizes in various competitions. But i feel I could not have achieved this much without my parents’ support. I am very thankful to them. I wish everyone would have a hobby of his own that will keep his mind fresh and be creative at the same time.
