    Does anyone here paint?

    I'm just trying to teach myself watercolours right now, and I'm really into it! I picked up some supplies a few years ago and never did anything with it, but recently have started playing around with them.

    In the last two weeks, I've made four or five paintings, and I just can't get enough. I used to paint with acrylics, but I honestly find this so much easier and cathartic.

    Does anyone else practice a painting medium of some kind?

    I used to do a bit of IRL painting (oils, acrylics) but now I primarily paint digitally...just as cathartic, less messy...

    Re: Does anyone here paint?

    I didn't do much painting myself. A brush just doesn't feel as good to me as a pencil, pen or even scraping tool (ink on scratch-paper). With that said, of the painting media I've done, I found Watercolor to be the most enjoyable.

    I do once in a while. Not that I'm any good at it, but I enjoy it and it relaxes me. I've always painted with acrylic, but I got my hands on some good watercolours recently and I'm actually pretty happy with them. I have a lot of coloured ink and I've been watching some videos about painting with that, so I'm gonna try some time, it looks cool.

    Re: Does anyone here paint?

    I've been known to paint like a maniac, on occasion.

    I haven't felt like a maniac lately, but that's subject to change at any moment...

    I love to paint. I don't have much time for it these days, sadly, but I love it. Mostly tiny watercolors and acrylics on giant canvases.

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    Re: Does anyone here paint?

    I paint with acrylics occasionally and sometimes I like to do a little bit of digital painting/drawing as well (though I'm not super great at either, honestly). I took an oil painting class when I was younger that I loved a ton and I'd love to get back into oils, but they take so long to dry and are a bit too smelly; I think I would need a dedicated art studio kind of place that my dog could be kept out of for that and with my current work schedule, I don't really like being away from my dog during the free time I do have. My mom keeps pushing me to try the painting outside thing (plein air) but I find landscapes kind of boring honestly and I don't think I'm anywhere near fast enough to do moving animals without a photograph to work from. My sister and my mom and I like going to Paint Night or Painting With A Twist on occasion, lol.

    Re: Does anyone here paint?

    Yup. I love spray painting. I got really into make moons and nighttime landscapes for awhile. I also really love to do pastels. I consider them a cross between painting and drawing. And I'll do paint-by-numbers just for fun.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    Re: Does anyone here paint?

    I am not artistic in the least! The best your going to get out of me is a stick figure. I do however now work for Jack Richeson and Co and we manufacture and distribute art supplies. So while I can't help on the creating part I can help on the product part.
