I am a self-taught artist. Years ago before divorce happened I painted nearly every day. My preferences then were color and whimsy and I used acrylics and colored pencils. Then divorce happened and I haven’t been able to paint as much due to working full time.
It’s been about 12 years since divorce & my interests have changed. I love the idea of pastels since they blend so well and there is no clean-up. The color is vibrant. I used to do very simple shapes but now I’m very interested and trying to learn impressionism with the pastels.
This is one of my attempts. I don’t feel i’s finished yet because I’m not feeling as pleased as I would like with it. But it’s only the beginning.
Here’s a link to many of my acrylics that I’ve done in the past, if you’re interested:
