Loved everything about this article and your art! Especially the bit about finding your own path. That’s where I am right now. I try a few techniques I like here and there, but I’m starting to see I have better luck and am more satisfied with my work when I stop looking for inspiration online (or elsewhere printed) and paint first, and look up…[Read more]
But have you seen the All Black Matte Special edition? So beautiful. I am resisting. I have a Vista EF demonstrator which I started with last year, and just recently binged on a TWISBI Precision which I LOOOOOVE, so I told myself I can’t have more than one of any one kind of pen (I spend enough on art supplies instead). I do want to get a flex nib…[Read more]
Wonderful review! Yay for actually productive supplies!

Since I have pictures from each stage, I’ve found I prefer the 3rd version the most (posted on the 18th), so it was also a lesson in learning I may not prefer to add all…[Read more]
Thanks so much! It was definitely one of those turning point pieces where I finally PHYSICALLY understood how the negative painting technique works. I often read or see examples of stuff and say oh that’s a great technique, but it’s so different to finally have it click and implement it with some success. I hope to expand upon it even more the…[Read more]
Bob Ross’s show is on Netflix (at the moment) and I love putting it on when I’m going to bed. That or Cosmos, so soothing, lol. Skillshare is awesome too. I’m totally guilty of watching the vast majority of the videos I’ve saved and not following though with the projects, lol.
