Thumbs up Introduction: MikeArty

Hi All,

My name is MikeArty, I am new to the world of art and have recently trying my hand out at different art mediums. I decided to take up art as a hobby only recently as I went through a rough patch and found that art really helped calm me down and also allowed me to explore and create worlds of any kind, using nothing but my imagination.

Soon I will post pics of the different art I have created and would love any feedback on them. Also any tips from anyone for a complete beginner to getting started and finding the medium that really speaks to me would really be appreciated.

Hope to get to know all of you much better and share our creativity.

God Bless and keep creating!!!

Welcome MikeArty,

As a complete beginner ... you'll love all the media.

Oils are fluid and intense and if you like mess ... you'll be in heaven.

Pastels ... the expensive buttery kind will astound you.

Graphite pencils will allow you to explore the world of shadings.

Acrylics ... if you use 'retarder' ... will enchant you.

Watercolors ... once you get the hang of it ... 'less is more' ... will delight you.

Best regards ...
