I used to draw a lot, using mostly charcoal.  It’s my fav :).  There’s a lot more forgiveness and I love shading.  I used pastels sometimes too, just for fun, colorful stuff.  I really haven’t picked up a drawing utensil since I studied art in Italy for a semester in college.  Sucked the fun right out of doing it in boring old USA lol.  I do have all of the stuff though, maybe I’ll start again this summer!

I like to sketch and use pastels, even though I haven’t in a long time!

I would consider myself an ok artist. lol. Art is something really hard to judge if you are good… This always made me wonder what made up our marks in art class.

i have a degree in art… so yes i do a lot of it! when i was in school i liked oils, but then i did art therapy for grad school and i started doing more of water color then. i think the medium is a lot more free flowing so it’s easier to express yourself and get it all out there.

i paint and draw.  regularly.  i’d go insane otherwise.  though oils and beige carpet in my apartment aren’t the best of friends.  mediums?  in no particular order: pastels, acrylic, oil, watercolor, sharpie markers, canvas, plywood, charcoal on bristol board!, etc

my Fiance comments when I’m starting to get a little crazy that perhaps its time to bust out the easel again … he knows me so well.

Studio art was my second major in undergrad – I’m not prolific, but do enjoy it a lot.  Charcoal is my favorite medium – it’s so primal to me.  Using the earth with your fingers to create.  I miss it a lot.  Maybe I’ll take a class at the local community college to get a fresh start!

I illustrate (old school paints and pencils way; not the graphic-y Adobe way)

Hurrah for artistic bees!

I paint. The only artwork in our house is what I have painted. But, a real artist would be appalled. I usually do my paintings because I know what I want and usually I cannot find something out there that has the colors I want.
