No. I don't deseve it. I painted a very beautiful landscape as it appeared in somebody's else photo that I found myself on the Internet and I liked it. I realise that the clouds are not well finished. My parents worry because my teacher doesn't teach me to draw, only to paint and they don't see big interest in her as there are many other pupils at the same time in the academy. They suffer because they don't have big knowledge of drawing or painting. They are thinking to ask the teacher to alternate drawing and painting as I never draw
In worst case, continuing with this teacher, this year I will learn the basics of watercolor and oil painting. I will also try to paint with pastel on wood -so far I only paint with acrylic on paper or canvas or with pastel on white paper-, I'm very excited about learning new techniques
Last year I had other teacher, she was teaching me in private classes, she was not a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts, as my present teacher, but she had talent to guide me, took big interest and taught me a lot. She was such good person that when my father lost his job she offered my parents to teach me for free, though my parents refused because she is also in a difficult economic situation and they are not able to abuse
Unfortunately, a friend of us brought me to a Fine Arts expert -somebody who studied Fine Arts and works selling other painter's paintings- to listen his opinion on my paintings and any tip that could be of interest. He advised me strongly to change my old teacher for the present teacher and none of us is very happy with that change, though I do not loose my enthusiasm for painting
To be positive, the change of teachers enriches the experience

The teacher that offered to teach you for free during the hardship is of stellar character and grace. I would cherish that kind of kindness in this present world. What a wonderful act for the sake of you and your pursuit of your art! Keep going with it. Don't give up! that's what the lady at my local art store told me recently.I pass it along! thx.
in any case it is a beautiful "version" of the painting you told me about... you deserve all the positive comments
i sent you some art e-books ... i have some new and old books i couldn't send you the new ones cause they are too heavy for the attachment, however the old ones are very useful cause they are about the basics of drawing and painting i hope you like and find them interesting ... in the school it always happens this way i have never been satisfied of my teachers in this case the personal efforts can fill the gaps...
i loved the fact that you'v seen the positive side of the problem this is a very good way of life
