I have been drawing and painting ever since I could hold a pencil. In high school I took art as a major course all four years, meaning I had art class every single day of my high school career. Drawing and painting were a big part of my life. After years of creating with fine arts I learned how to sew and fell in love with fashion design, leading to my major choice in college. Since leaving high school I really haven't given much thought to painting beyond dabbling in watercolor. Recently however I was feeling inspired to paint again and decided to get back into it with acrylics. I picked up some paint, canvases and brushes at Blick and was finally able to test them out this weekend.
I forgot how much I love getting into the flow and painting, even with a simple subject like a basic animal. I spent a few hours on Saturday binging on a new podcast (Lore, check it out) and painting next to our sunny windows. Ah, it was lovely. Below are some of the paintings I did, pretty simplistic as I refresh my long lost skills. What do you guys think? Anyone want one???
