Any Other Artists On Here Of Any Kind?

59 posts in this topic

Just curious. I'm new here and looking to meet some new people... sooo, in the name of common interest, are there any artists here? I'm heading off to art school in a month! My favorite media is oil paint, but I also draw a ton, and have dipped into ceramics. Lots of figure and portrait drawing.

I consider myself a bit of an artist but don't seem to have enough time to indulge!

My dream would be an attic studio near the sea somewhere wild :)

I like sketching and using coloured pencils/watercolours, I'd like to have a go with oils but I'm scared the kids would get hold of them!

Have you anything you'd like to show?

Neat! An attic near the sea... sound perfect :) I first learned to paint using watercolors, but now that I've tried oils I can't go back, haha.. too bad that they're toxic, that's the only downer. What do you usually sketch?

Wow you are great :)

I tend to do bold, graphic stuff really. Also I'm quite into geometry so I'll draw a lot of doodley stuff too

Hello CC....Fellow artist here! Great work... I love your flesh tones.....I too prefer oils and am considering using a similar technique to yours on my next painting... very Leonardo De Vinci.... I usually keep my strokes loose.... I have an attic studio.... but its overlooking the woods... I will have imagine an ocean :( lol..... what are you hoping to do with your art degree?

Sounds really neat! I'd love to see some of your week if you want to share!

Hi! Thank you very much, the painting I showed is from when I was really into that glowy Renaissance look. Now I'm trying to experiment with color and loosen up a bit... unsuccessful so far xD I'd love to see your stuff sometime!

In a perfect world I would want to simply be a gallery artist, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I'm looking to explore different career possibilities while I'm in art school... if nothing catches my attention by the time I graduate, I might start a portrait business on the side of a day job and see if it catches on... this summer I've been drawing portraits and making a decent amount of money with it!

How long have you been painting? :)

Cat, I dabble. :)

Check out my thread titled Autumn. I like sketching, mostly. I have painted but my medium is pencil. Slumped over a sketchpad for hours, graphite on the side of my hand... my favorite pastime. Let's see some of your stuff cat. (That could be taken wrong. I was referring to your artwork)

Here's a sample of my stuff, since you asked:

Such beautiful work you ladies posted! I'm super jealous of your talent! I bet that takes years of practice though.

Thank you, it's water colour and Indian ink and of course tea bags :)

It's painted onto drafting film and then laid over paper so cheating a little!

I went to the park one day, set up with a little sign, and started selling 15 minute portraits for $20.. turns out a loooot of parents want their kids drawn. It's been getting good business :)

 

Glad you picked it up again, it's such a good hobby/career!
