Question #4. When you go to an art museum or look at art books, what are you drawn to?
I haven’t been to any really big art museums yet. I have been to lots of smaller ones in the towns nearby me. But usually in those, it is one artist’s work in their particular medium of interest. But in a couple of small galleries where there is a variety of mediums, I am drawn to watercolor paintings the most. If I have a lot of time, I try to study their work and figure out how they made something look a certain way.
I like drawings and paintings of realistic things and people. I am amazed at what portrait artists can do. The realism in some portrait work I’ve seen has actually fooled me into thinking I was looking at a photograph! Some portrait artists are that awesome!
Have a great day, and give someone you love a hug! 🙂

I agree, it’s amazing when you think you’re looking at a photograph and discover it’s really a painting. You’ll be at that level, Patsy, I have no doubt. 🙂
Wow, Jill. You sure have a lot of confidence in me! Thank you! 🙂 I can’t believe some drawings I’ve seen that really fooled me!
