United States
I love art in a lot of different forms... water colors, pastels, sketches in pencil and ink, colored pencil art, oil paint, acrylic paint, digital art, photography, metal work, ceramics, sculpture, etc. I could go on, but I won't. My favorite art is pencil sketches and nature photography, but really I like it all. Great art to me is not what it's made out of and/or style of media used, but how it is put together, studied, and sometimes just done for the love of art! The passion the artist puts into their work, no mater if it is written or visual art, is what I love to see even if the art is not my "style". Personally, I draw with pencil, colored pencils, ink, crayons, pen, markers. I dabble in painting once in a blue and on the rare occasion that I paint I use acrylic paint or watercolor. I also do digital things on the computer as well. I am also a poet and a few of mine are posted on deviantARt (sorry almost all my posted poetry have typos). I need to edit them and also submit more poems. I will be doing that sometime Soon. I am also learning to take photographs and find that film cameras are so much better than digital "film" although right now digital is all I have. I like color photography, but love black and white best. Black and white photos are so much more dramatic, have a richer and more intense saturation of shadows and light and are much more pleasing to the eye.
