Well, we tend to emulate or at least, incorporate every good attribute in ourselves, which we see or observe in all others. Talking about a quality that my friend has, which I am in awe of is the way he paints. So, my friend Chriz has always been a prolific painter. I know him from my school days and he used to be one of my best friends back then and he still is.
Chriz has always had a knack for painting and he can sketch anyone or anything at any given time. He is so proficient at this art that he doesn’t even require to look at an object or a person and can draw an exact sketch with the most defined features of that thing or person just by a mere explanation or idea of it. He is an absolutely awe-inspiring person as far as his finesse of painting is concerned.
Chris won several accolades and awards for his paintings and sketches and I noticed it for the first time when he represented our school at an inter school painting competition. Although I did know about his painting talent, I got a chance to see it on my own when his paintings were placed in the art gallery of our school and it was astounding.
Well, I too, have a predilection towards paintings and I consider myself as a fine painter, however, Chriz’s skills are perfect and I would like to learn the skills he possesses, at least, a half of it. He is nice enough to agree to teach some of his tips to me next summer and I am waiting for it.
