New adventures of painting

Postby Briar Fox » 23 Feb 2017, 23:18

For a few years now I have been bouncing between studying the bard course and stopping completely just trying to find myself and my place in life.. I originally started studying with my former mother in law but then my husband and I split and got divorced.. at that point I bought my own material and started a new account for a new life..after about half a year in.. I found my inspiration and started to do art again for the first time in 8 or more years...I've never been much of a painter but I've found myself really really enjoying watercolor! :) I thought I would finally make a post on here to say hello and to share my paintings. I hope you all enjoy and also, hello everyone!!! :D

Wonderful work! I couldn't pick a favorite because I really like all of them. This is thought provoking work, and in my opinion that is a talent in itself.

I was doing commissions for awhile but after four people asked for something and then stopped talking to me the minute they were done..I stopped and just started painting what I wanted to :P thank you so much for wanting to support me though! I do have an etsy shop where I'm selling prints and crocheting things. My goal this year is to fill it up with little treasures :) so far its kind of bare hehe.

Major life changes can take a number on you, can't they?

This is really beautiful work! So very inspiring. I'm just leaning watercolor, after years of painting in acrylics and colored pencil illustrations, and my, they are a completely different medium! I hope to be this good some day. Thank you for sharing!

Wow these are gorgeous! I especially love the first one with the crows and the galaxy, it's rendered so beautifully! And the skeletal ones really show the balance between life and death. Lovely work!

sorry for the delay in my reply, for some reason I'm not getting any notifications for this post or others I follow >.> I'm not sure if its user error or what hehe.
thank you so much!!! I wish you all the luck with watercolor..I tried my hand at some other painting and for whatever reason it just never resonated with me..I love paintings and all sorts of art but, didnt enjoy it for myself.. watercolor has been a whole indescribable experience for me, I hope you are enjoying it as much as I do! :) if you have any sort of trouble, there are some amazing tutorials on youtube.. I did a few of them to understand the techniques and in moments when inspiration ran dry.. I'd love to see some of your work :)

thank you so much!!! I'm sorry for my delayed response, like I mentioned in a different reply, for some reason I dont get notifications for this post or any that I follow :/ I love that you see balance in the skeletal ones.. I never really thought of it that way, or at least not on more than a subconscious aspect :) thank you for pointing that out

heres a few more I've done in the last month, I'm starting to branch out a little. I picked up a watercolor moleskine notebook to test out.. the paper is a little more unpredictable than the normal books I usually use..but it makes for interesting blends and control issues :) I hope you guys enjoy! <3

I did this one last night.. I've been feeling so much from the world lately.. I haven't really been able to express it except in art.

Beautiful work, Briar Fox!

I'm sorry email notifications aren't working these days. Our hosting site recently changed its email service and our tech folks haven't yet gotten our board's software to the point where the automatic notifications will function. But they're working on it, so there's yet hope!

Wow, that's amazing, especially the bone anatomy... :blink: I'm happy when I manage a fairly correct anatomy on the outside...
