I Love Painting

    I love working with all painting mediums.

    I love oil the most, because it blends so beautifully and gives you ample time to abandon and return to the project, which is great for me, as I get discouraged and depressed easily. I'm currently doing a watercolor that will be an embodiment of grace, beauty, and mysticism. I'm...

    I used to do pen and ink

    and watercolours but I had to stop because of loss of fine motor coordination and pain in my right hand due to MS. I stopped for about 5 years and then took up Acrylics and learned some impressionistic techniques and adaptions with the paintbrush. Heavy body acrylics are so...

    My Other Love

    I mainly love to draw, but I have a soft spot for painting. I have only painted in acrylics so far. They are easy to clean up, and cheap. But one day I hope to explore oils. I have watercolors but I haven't even tried using them yet. I've been trying to stray away from my...

    I started painting again last night

    and I've always had this habit of testing and cleaning my brushes on my legs. I love waking up to paint all over my arms and legs....

    I Miss Painting

    I haven't painted in several months. Mostly because I'm really low on supplies and money is super tight. My medium is acrylics, but I'd like to get into oils.

    I absolutely LOVE painting!

    I am on the set design crew for Beauty and the Beast for my school, but i have had a couple rough days lately and painting has gotten my mind off of it. I just put my headphones in and blare my music. Its a great stress reliever.

    I find painting to be very relaxing

    and soothing. I Like it because it's a way for me to be creative and think outside the box.

    Acrylic Paints

    I recently made myself and a few friends wands for the Harry Potter book opening.  For this project, I needed paint, and acrylic was the best thing for the job.  I wanted to just get some of the horrible craft paint at Michaels or a similar store, but there don't seem...

    I love painting with watercolors.

    I'm not bad at it. I love the way the colors blend together and I like the way it feels. I like to do realism. Especially lips ๐Ÿ’‹ and yeh I painted the cover image. ๐ŸŽจ

    Summer Painting

    This summer I started a painting and didn't finish it. I don't know why I stopped painting. I just looked at the canvas and felt all depressed, knowing that there was so much left to go. Although the first day of school's tomorrow, classes don't start until Monday. I wonder if I...

    Painting Is a Therapy

    I paint two ways. The way that uses my skills, my more "realism" paintings. And my "I'M feeling crazy emotions AHHH!" sort of paintings. Ok, i admit, most of the emotional ones probably look like crap to most people but i find emotions a great way to...

    That's one of my paintings unfinished,

    please let me know what you think about it ;p The only time I really breath and the roll world stops, just like I'm in control of time and movement. There's no rules to follow, I just let my mind speak up throw my hands.
