Someone told me there was a colored pencil guild in Portland. In looking for that guild, I was led to this meetup site.
I am hoping for: Constructive feedback on my work. Inspiration Tips from other artists or illustrators. Just hoping for a creative and supportive group.
I would like to improve my watercolor technique, and my technique in general. I would like to improve my shadowing. Aaaand.. this next year, I plan to try acrylics and pastels, neither of which I have really tried since Junior High.
Abstract or impressionist watercolor; detailed colored pencil drawings (mostly animals); graphite portraits.
The Impressionist movement; Carl Larsson; Tibor Nagy; Frits Thaulow; Pierre Adolphe Valette; Mark Rothko; Charles Ross; the Wyeth family
Hi everybody! I write and illustrate children's books, as well as doing some impressionist watercolor and graphite portraiture. I find great inspiration in seeing other artists' work, and hearing about their progress. Love this group!
I really enjoyed this group, and look forward to many more meetings in future. It will take me awhile to learn names, though -- so sorry!
