Still learning to draw and paint



Yet another one from Wet Canvas here.

Still wanting to learn to draw better and learn to paint.

Mostly in acrylic, but I'm always trying stuff, so expect to see me everywhere lol.

In order of most to least used are:

  • Pen and paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Gouache
  • Colored India ink
  • Regular and water miscible oils
  • Watercolor
  • Dry media like colored pencils and graphite, which I'm trying to nudge myself back into because it's easier to practice in those.

A question: is there a place on here for Art Journals/scrapbooks? This is mine from that other site. I found it a good place for me to see my stuff online without cluttering up the main feeds with random junk:D Not sure why, but seeing it posted somewhere helps me learn.
Hi AES. Welcome to the site. I have no problem making a Journal Forum. That's a good idea. Hopefully, more people will post there too. Don't forget to take advantage of all the forums though. ;)

Again, welcome aboard!

A noble and worthy pursuit. Somehow, it continues to elude me!
Anyway, I'm new here also; we're in good company here :)
Welcome to Creative Spark, AES! It sounds like you have a healthy interest in all types of media. I hope to see your work in several forums here!

So yes, just get comfortable with your journals/sketches and, most importantly, have fun here. :)
That's some really interesting stuff. The experiments! You painted with makeup powder!?? whaa?! :D

We have much in common (alongside executive function challenge). I'm working on improving drawing and acrylic painting too.
