is it drawing, painting, pattern design etc.
i love all of the above.
what about you?........
I wrote about doodling in one of my hubs. That's what I like to do best. However, my degree and several of my certificates and diplomas are in design.
I am not talented in drawing and painting, so my available favorite choice is photography.
I have always enjoyed photography. I used to draw a lot too but haven't for several years. I may have to get out a sketch pad and give it a try again.
i enjoy sketching and currently learning to color them using Photoshop CS4 or 3
There's nothing better than being outdoors in the Scottish landscape with a sketch book
Not in winter though, haha. I live in Sheffield, England, I only go out in the summer, it's too cold to be drawing outdoors this time of year.
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.

I, myself, love to mix mediums. My paintings seem to always have a better flow if I use more than one. My favorite so far is watercolor and acrylic, not mixed but used in the same piece of work. They seem to flow together really well, and the acrylic gives the watercolor an extra...

Do you enjoy drawing?What media do you like to use?Do you draw in private, or in public? (I like to do quick studies on the train, using whatever pen and paper I have with me.)I just wanted to show off one of my efforts. The picture of my hand is drawn with charcoal on...

Lowbrow is an art movement that has been in the making since the 1950's. The art incorporates pop culture and tells a story about how the artists see the world. It's not about being vulgar it's about being a smart ass. Think of Mad Magazine. I wrote a hub on it and I'd like...

Do you think it's disingenuous to trace images used in drawings and paintings?Many people posting art instruction type hubs will direct the reader to trace an image to be used in a certain art project or painting. I've always wondered if this wasn't a bit fraudulent. Shouldn't the artist draw...
