    Drawing is helpful for keeping me calm

    I Took My Art Back

    When I was a young girl, I drew a picture that told the story of abuse. My abuser burned my wrist on a radiator. I didn't draw anymore and never colored outside the lines in my coloring books. I remember art classes.....I loved it all so much and the teachers gave me C's because...

    This was an oil painting I did.

    I was just bored and started messing around and this is what I ended up drawing. I live near the ocean so I guess that's what inspired me.

    I have always liked drawing the precious moment

    characters. I decided to draw the little angel in the clouds and utilized water colors.

    I LOVE ART, anything ART.

    I've been drawing since I was in 5th grade and haven't really stopped. I mean I have but it's never been something I forgot, I've only expanded with different medians, and genres... I'm really into crafting I guess I'd call it, I'm a mixed media kind of girl. Really not into...

    I like to use the Paint program on computers to

    create various images of my own using what's provided. The other day I was so bored and could not stop thinking of my crush. So I made this image. I call it "Hidden" because a lot is hidden in it and I also have a hidden message behind it.

    But it sucks when you get the artist's block.

    I'm sitting here with my sketchbook open, yet I have no idea on what to draw. People? Scenery? Animals? objects? My mind is blank. Fudge, I need to find more friends who appreciate or are involved with art. -grabby hands- --Stella

    I have tried almost all outlets of art... I tried photography, drawing, and painting - with acrylics. I was terrible at them all, but I decided to try again... This time I paint with watercolors! And I am good at it!!

    but uh, I got distracted . I really like spray paint art but it makes me nervous because it's quick work. This is my amateur attempt though! I know I could do better!

    I love to look at art

    and I have to say that I love to lose myself in the painting. Landscapes are my favorite with florals coming in a close second. I can remember the painting that hung over my grandmothers couch and it had scenery that I could close my eyes and escape in so I guess I have felt...

    I did a lot of doodles in highschool,

    just to pass the time. I love drawing, but I can never find the inspiration, and when I do, nothing looks right. I wish I was more artistic & creative. It would be lovely to have some actual artistic skills.

    I think you can definitely tell the difference

    between a drawing that was colored with just color pencils and one that was done with different mediums. the first dragon i posted was done with watercolor paint then i shaded it in with my prisma colors. i think i like the shading in the other one better.
