I Started painting.
Friends bought me everything I needed to start painting in acrylic medium. I was a bit wary at first because I had tried watercolour and found it most frustrating to the point of putting me off my beloved art. Again I have discovered another natural talent and each picture is again better than the previous one.
There has been a major shift in my Artwork, through research, I have discovered the technique of dry brush with coloured pencils on the correct paper surface. I always knew in my mind that the type of media I was using was not showing my true ability. I am now confident, quicker and happy with this technique and able to produce the drawings in glorious colour.
About 10 years ago I started drawing animals as a recreational pastime I have had no formal training or education in this subject, just the love of pets and the pleasure they bring to our lives. I soon discovered a natural talent and this quickly became a hobby with friends and relatives requesting a drawing of their own pets, each picture has improved in the realism and perfection I strive for. Strange that it may seem I want my art to look like a photograph so I am drawing a photograph to look like a photograph?
