Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

Hello,
My name is Rachael, I'm 24 and from WA. I've been lurking around this site for quite awhile, but never worked up the nerve to post anything (until now). I have wanted to be an artist of any sort since I got my first set of crayons. However, I never had much desire to practice, so I'm not very good. I've worked as a caregiver for the last four years; of course I'm doing the one thing I was certain I would never do...
I like to try all mediums, & I have a lovely collection of half done projects. I tried cps after looking at some pictures done with them online. They are definately a favorite.

Hello, my name is Toni. This is my first post on Wet Canvas. I have done 3 colored pencil portraits as gifts so far after reading Ann Kullberg's Colored Pencil Portraits. I am 37, a homeschooling mother of 4 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. Here's the first portrait I did, C and C enthusiastically awaited, but it is a finished work

This is the baby of a friend of mine from church. She had a 12 year old and 10 year old and long since considered her family finished, so he was a surprise. . I was so excited for them. He is actually over a year old now. She is a wonderful mother and knows she is blessed.

Toni...gorgeous!!! Looking forward to more of your work!
Hi, Rachel! Yeah, sometimes I think it would be a good business to be the "finisher upper" of all kinds of projects...art, knitting...cross stitch....

Maybe if you posted one for comments it would motivate you to finish it up?? Anyway, welcome!

I would love to comment on the newborn picture, but it deserves its own thread. That way all your effort would be appreciated fully and any questions or comments could be pinpointed to that image. It surely deserves its own place in the sun!

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

Hello All!

I thought I would make an appearance here. I have posted before in the fantasy forum, but not here. I am 33, male, married, no kids, four cats, one snake, and a whole mess of fish(tropical). My profession is also in a cube farm, as an engineer. I would like to be a full time artist, and I'm working on getting prints made of my work to head in that direction.

I work mostly with colored pencil, although I do dabble in acrylic paint. I tend to grind my color into the page until there is no paper showing at all. For some reason, this seems to be the only way to get the transitions to my liking. My work is mostly abstract and/or fantasy. When not working completely abstract I like drawing fantasy females and/or realistic animals. I'm usually confused on whether to post something in the abstract/fantasy or this forum. I don't draw as much as I would like, since I seem so worn out from the daily grind.

I have been impressed with the kindness people show on this forum, and look forward to learning a lot. I will post some of my work soon.

Peace,
TJT

Welcome TJT! My advice would be to post in more than one forum. That way you can get all the feed back you are looking for. Looking forward to seeing some of your work. Wanda

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

I'm new here! Just joined this forum. I've been working in cp for years. I mainly do water scenes and am currently both illustrating and writing my own children's educational book. I live on Vancouver Island off the coast of British Columbia so I get alot of ocean exposure. I also work a little in watercolour and ink.

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

I have been lurking for a while however have learned just about everything I know about art from this site (wetcanvas)
I am fifty this month have a son of fifteen Robert and my wife Linda, we live in Johannesburg South Africa and have just moved there after living in Uganda, Bahrain and Qatar.
I am a helicopter engineer and work on contracts all over the world, at present I am working in Eket Nigeria (in the Delta) for Exxon Mobil.
I work in Pastel,Pencil, Coloured Pencil,Charcoal, and Acrylic. I enjoy studying different artistic techniques and applying them to my work.
I post under the following threads Acrylic. Pastel, Wildlife, portraits, illustration, figures,marine, coloured pencil.
If I manage to sell any of my drawings or paintings sixty percent of the takings go to wildlife rehabilitation projects of my choice.

Re: Newbies....Who Are You? Who, who, who who??? #3

Welcome everybody!

I am fairly new to wetcanvas and I have discovered that it is a wonderful place full of amazingly talented people. I live in a small town so this is my only outlet to commune with people who love art and cp as much as I do! My work has improved so much from what I have seen and learned here. I can't say enough nice things about it!!!

Me? I have posted in one of these meet and greets before but I am 29, married with two dogs (lol!), and absolutely love painting portraits in cp. I take commissions and mostly do children. I work on mi-teintes, bristol, or stonehenge and my style is fairly realistic. I work in lots of light layers.

Hi Toni, I'm sort of a neighbor. I'm from Muskogee. Great portrait.
