I have joined this website to learn and share some tips here and there...and just enjoy being with other creatives!!! I have been in the art field for many years, but learned my craft going through a commercial/technical art school years ago. I let family, work, other hobbies and life get in the way of my art for decades, and only in the past couple of years have I finally decided to paint for pleasure.....so, I am learning all over again, and painting in media I am not always familiar with. I seem to be having a love affair with acrylics, however....while watercolors remain illusive to me!! I have done some work with gouache, also, and love the opaqueness of that, and also water soluble oils.....I love them for blending, and the lack of chemicals associated with regular oil paints. I would love to try pastels...but they intimidate me for some reason...maybe one day!!!
I hope you enjoy some of my work, I paint slowly, so there will be times I don't have anything to show for awhile....but I will never stop creating again...Thanks for looking!!! Enjoy your painting opportunities when you can....the more you paint, the more creativity you will have in you....a great renewable resource!!!! ~~Suzanne
