Re: Are you an art medium jumper?

[quote=L Skylar Brown]I am a Jumper. I have tried all types fron watercolors to digital. Digital has become by favorite. It is totally portable, with no clean-up.




Art is art and your digital images are very good. Digital backgrounds are becoming common place in the movie industry and even photography. Disney studios used to employ lots of artist who labored hours and hours over what a computer can now do in a few minutes, so automation marches on. A human still must operate the computer, but he must share a great deal of the credit to the computer for the end work. That said, I like your compositions.

Re: Are you an art medium jumper?

Medium jumping is vital to the development of artists today and key to their continued evolution. For example, look at Picasso, an artist who many people feel is the greatest and quintessential artist of the 20th century (I'm not arguing that point one way or the other, btw). Picasso is primarily known for his paintings, and he certainly mastered the medium, coming up with new abstract modes of expression such as Cubism. However, Picasso worked in many different media: sculpture, collage, printmaking, and ceramics, to name a few. His work in collage was key to his and Juan Gris's development of Cubism. Did he work in collage for the same number of years and with the same intensity he did his painting? Probably not. But collage afforded him the opportunity to aesthetically explore some things he was interested in about art.

Don't worry about jumping from one medium to the other. It's part of your journey in becoming the artist you can be.

YES!!!

I have jumped from oil painting, to graphic design, to mosaics, to colored pencil, to watercolors, pen and ink, pastels , and jewelry making! It is fun to mix it up. I am most proficient in drawing, but really enjoy all mediums.

Re: Are you an art medium jumper?

I literally want to play with everything! I have played around with acrylic, watercolor, graphite, pen and ink, colored pencil (both wax and water soluble), alcohol markers, colored ink in various forms, pastel and digital. I did find that I approach every medium pretty much the same way, and the result I get is not all that distinct either? Though I feel like many commercial artists today (those I follow on various social media) also approach different media in a similar manner and their acrylic paintings and their colored pencil works don't really look all that different; it certainly doesn't require as different a mind set as when speaking a different language (I am bilingual so I have a good basis of comparison ).

Hi there , Spanish is my first language and I am on my way to a third language.

Experimenting with different mediums gives me a new perspective about art. Only this way I can observe from other angle my creations while learning about other styles and techniques.

Re: Are you an art medium jumper?

I'm a jumper. I love drawing, oils and sculpture. I think it's good to work with different things. I have people around me telling me I need to stick with just one.

Well, I suppose one can have just one shirt in their closet, as well.

Re: Are you an art medium jumper?

You MUST try different media!

Often I've started a drawing; "made it" into a watercolor, discovered it was really awful. But I've recently been holding to the motto "never give up" (for educational sake) and if erasing and/or sanding doesn't work (and I might have to paste some paper on to fix a hole ) there's a move to opaque media, gouache being a powerful over-worker. Oil pastels, too. And always, as a last resort perhaps, assemblage!

I've really been surprised at how sheer determination at working at something can result in color schemes, shapes, and especially surface textures that work together, but which I could never have planned to begin with.

So with me it's not so much a matter of jumping back and forth, as letting everything jump in together; whatever you might need, use!

That said, to be an Expert In One Thing, it's probably better not to stray. . .
