Roll With It

Recently, Hubs added to my pencil collection by getting me a 12 pack of Prismacolor Premiers to try. I must say first off that I am rough on things. As much as I would love to keep things in mint condition, I tend to break, dent, or otherwise damage my materials.

After doing some research on my…

The Easy Stuff

I have spent the last few days, not making art so much, but practicing my gradients, lines, and hold. I recently posted in the Beginner's group forum that my hold was atrocious. It was causing my fingers to go numb.

The best way I could think to practice was to make pencil swatches. As a friend was so proud to tell me, that's easy. Why yes, yes it was. My response was that sometimes things should be easy.

While struggle and mistakes may grow your artistic ability, practicing…

Downloading artwork

I put in 5 new pictures today. It is taking a long time for them to be put in. I am not sure I am doing this right. The first pics I put in went in pretty easy. Am I doing anything wrong here? Message says they are going in but it has been about 2 hours for downloading.
Thnx

Beginner's stage but loving it

Just wanted to say hi to everybody. I have been looking for a place where I can show what I have done so far in my landscape painting and some of my drawings. I am just a newbie but I have discovered my hobby. I just retired in March of this year and I started drawing animals. It was quite rough at first but as I got more practiced somewhat better. I want to put my landscape paintings out there with the thought of getting some help and some advice as to how to improve. As I practice and I learn… READ MORE

Hello All!

Just joined and looking forward to learning so much. I’m a total noob to art. I’ve taken two art classes in earlier years, but quit because “I wasn’t good enough.” Speaking honestly, I never gave it a chance, because I couldn’t get it perfect right away and the mess. I was recently diagnosed with OCD, which makes many things including my art experiences make much more sense.

I’m a stay-at-home mom with two small children that dreams of children’s books, games, and apps. I decided that…
