Well well, it seems I have had 16,000 page views on my humble page and my deviations have received 53,430 views as well. Must admit I never expected this when I first joined DA 3 years ago. I would like to give a big thank you to all the people who have stopped by and viewed or faved my artistic efforts, its greatly appreciated!
I now mostly want to practice painting (only tried acrylics so far) and I've recently dabbled with photography as some of you may have noticed. Alas my camera is not good enough for my liking and maybe I'll look to invest in a better one at some point. Also I'm about to join a local painting group and hopefully can learn some new techniques and skills there from visiting artists who give sessions on a regular basis
Its been quite a while since my last feature so I've selected some of my recent favourites to showcase, enjoy!.
Some marvellous paper sculptures here
give him some favourites he more than deserves it!
I have a weakness for profile drawings and this artist is a master at them
I love his messy chaotic style, its a lot harder to achieve than it looks, keep up the fine work Derek!
This artist thanasistzortzis.deviantart.co…
is very talented at portraits, this one is in gouache paints
but he is equally good in oil paint , pastels and charcoal too!
I must get round to trying watercolours at some point, and this artist which I have featured before has certainly mastered them
Lastly and by no means least some stunning oil pastel landscape work here
Well that's it for now, you had better make the most of this, I don't do journals often..
