Painting is my first choice, but I enjoy lots of different mediums. Pen and ink makes interesting pieces, printmaking, photoshop, photography and dare I say it...I sometimes enjoy working with textiles.
I use a variety of mediums and I'm a traditional artist. I enjoy painting in watercolor because the colors can be vibrant or watered down. In doing oil paintings, I enjoy the process of using a brush or a palette knife in application for an oil painting. I love landscapes composition. Then ballpoint pen I can capture many details of a building and trees, with the crosshatching for shading; also it looks great after I scan it. I like graphite pencils because I can do a variety of shadows on a portrait or subject. Colored pencils are fun to use with a colorful subject to draw and color; the most challenging is coloring portraits. Using a variety of mediums allow me the freedom to express myself and to challenge myself as my technique and skill progresses.
I love street photography. I'm not that good yet, but I'm getting better and I love how it gets me peoplewatching in large crowds of people. I wrote a couple lenses on it, too, but doing it is more fun than writing about it.
I discovered fairly recently that I enjoy painting. I wasn't even sure if I could do it until I tried and it actually turned out not to bad for a first run. After more practice, my pictures have improved but I still haven't ventured upon painting any of the nature that I love yet...like sunsets, skies and waters...if I did paint them..I would want to do them justice.
