Firstly, thank you so very much for your guidance and tips!
Secondly, I am flattered by your comments and am striving and reaching to attain a much higher level in my work.
As you probably know, I love dogs, all animals really...but my first love has always been dogs. Drawing and doing Pastels I did as a child(LOOOOOng time ago...LOL), and wasn't allowed to continue. As an adult...well let's just say that I wasn't encouraged. In more recent times, my now late husband, urged me to pursue what he saw as a sleeping talent. I was so lacking confidence in my work, that I just didn't. Sadly, after his passing(as he would have been thrilled) is when I finally decided to get back to the one thing in my life(other than he) that always
ought me joy, and yes comfort.
So, I am fairly new to the world of creating...and I am so very happy to have finally decided to see where my abilities can take me in my work.
I know that I have a long way to go to attain the level of realism that I so want to achieve in my paintings, but it is with the guidance of fellow artists like yourself, and others on this wonderful forum, that I feel I can attain that with much hard work and effort.
I welcome your tips and assessments anytime, as I learn something everyday, and hopefully, can learn how to apply all the helpful advice.
Paint the light... it will come!
