Questions #2 & #3 – What is Your Primary Medium and What are you interested in…..

Artist's Career Guide
http://www.margaretpeot.com/

This is the next question I’m going to answer from the book “The Successful Artist’s Career Guide” by Margaret Peot.

I would have to say my primary medium is watercolors. I love mixing colors, applying pure color, playing in the water with brushes (I guess that’s left over from my kindergarten years), and just the whole process of painting. Speaking of kindergarten, I still remember what the paints we used at our easels smelled like! I even purchased a small easel, those paints, bright colored cups to put them in, and huge brushes for my kids when they were preschoolers! I still have them of course; I’m saving them for grandchildren, you see. And of course I have most of their paintings stored away to go through when they leave home as part of the grieving process of that “empty nest” syndrome. Getting back to the reason for this post…

Question #3. What media are you interested in but have not yet tried (bookbinding, encaustic, puppet making, glass blowing, ukiyo-e, shibori, egg tempera, pop-up structures, animation, type designing, letterpress printing, weaving…)?

Of course there are many many mediums I could choose from. I have only tried and kept doing graphite pencils, colored pencils, and acrylics in addition to watercolors. I have read a little bit about egg tempra painting, but I don’t know enough to write about it. It sounds interesting, but maybe messier than I’d want to deal with.

Puppet making perhaps? But I would just want to make the designs on paper I think. I am capable of sewing – I’ve even quilted some – but it is not something I would say I ENJOY! So, if I could design puppets, I’d have to get someone else to sew them. 😉

One profession she lists elsewhere in the book is a Botanical Illustrator. This has always interested me since I love to draw flowers. But I guess I wouldn’t want to be concentrating solely on plants and flowers as a profession.

So to conclude, I think that I will stick to drawing and painting whatever interests me. This gives me the variety I crave in my work.

Until next time, have a great day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
