Hey There

Hey everyone!

I just started painting again after a (way too) long break, and have fallen completely, head over heels in love all over again. My work can best be described as “dark surrealism”, and I’m mostly using gouache and acrylics, though I would love to get back into oils at some point when I have the space; the struggle is real when your “studio space” is in your bedroom!

I work in finance at an ad agency by day, but I’m trying to devote a substantial amount of time to my paintings when I can as it truly brings me joy. I’m at a point where I’d like to start approaching galleries and art shows, so hopefully I’ll find some pointers here.

Re: Hey There

Be sure to post your work in a medium or subject specific forum. We are primarily the welcoming committee here in New Users
When you post your art you will do well to include information such as medium, size, support used, etc. Also let them know if you desire C&C.
Enjoy exploring.
* You can access any Forum by using the “Forum Jump” located at the bottom right of the screen or the Channels drop down menu at the upper left
* Moderators and Guides have links in their Signature lines to address FAQ’s
* There are “Stickys’' (permanent threads that “stick” at the top of all thread listings) that are full of helpful information.
**You can use Google Advanced Search to help you locate topics of interest on WC by simply entering WetCanvas in the blank asking for a domain name

When you are reading a post inside a thread, as you are now, you will notice another blue bar just atop of your first post.

Re: Hey There

Hello there, I am also new here, but I thought I would drop by to welcome you. I quite like the soft coloring in the artwork you posted. It made pleasant to the eye in a way. I hope you manage to get well over time.
