I've already posted a bit, but just now an introduction. It's exciting to have found what seems to be a good community to encourage me to improve my work. I spent the last year or so doing weekly classes at a small atelier in New Zealand and am in the states right now looking for a way to continue my forward progress without that support. After years of stalled growth I have definitely come to appreciate the importance of community and training.
I want to continue to improve my accuracy and foundational drawing skills but also begin the work on narrative and imaginative work. You guys have persuaded me the SVS learn classes are worth going through and I'm really enjoying them already.
My favorite style of creating work is definitely oil paints. I want to learn more digital skills but sometimes am tired of computers after a day of work. I use watercolors and pens a lot right now because I don't have a good setup for my oils but hope to use them again soon. Very much missing the studio I used to use and trying to find new workflows that fit my life and let me keep creating.
