Hi, I'm Will, I'm 18, at school in the UK. I want to go on to study illustration, so I'm starting my foundation year in september. I'm a relatively classical painter, I'm super interested in art theory and stuff, so yeah. I like loads of artists (like everyone I guess haha), too many to list, but probably my biggest influences would be, Caravaggio, Thomas Moran, Donato Giancola, Greg Manchess, David Kassan and David Palumbo.

Re: Hello

Welcome to WetCanvas Will. Glad you joined us.

The link in my signature will take you to a thread where you will find lots of helpful information for newcomers.

You may navigate the site using either the Forum Jump in the bottom right, or the Channels Menu at the top left of a page. Forum Jump,is easier.

There are lots of resources in the Forums you may find useful, including an Art History Forum as well as the Café Guerbois for discussions. And there is a Reference Image Library for photos that you can access from the Content Areas bar at the top, if you need some ideas.

Happy exploring and I will look forward to seeing you around the site.

Re: Hello

Welcome to WC!

Lots of fine folks here, you will meet many of them as you browse about. Sharing, learning and teaching others is the best way to fan the creative flames.

We are always glad to see new members, hope you have time to explore all the different Forums. There are all levels of artists creating, in virtually all mediums.

There are many free tutorials available, and the friendly folks here will try to help you with any questions.

Be sure to review the guidelines for commercial uses, and for the use of images in the Reference Library..

Be sure to check out the Photography Forums, too. No camera is required! Many of us just like to look at phots. There are some very talented folks there.

Looking forward to seeing your art.
Looking forward getting to know you!

Life is good!
Very good indeed.
