I am just a little hermit who likes to dabble in art ^^
I'm Tori and I am a hopeless art addict (if you know a good 12 step program, let me know ;). I put a lot of care, love and attention into each of my pieces and I hope you enjoy them.
I like to do a lot of drawing, and I do it every day. The great thing about small to medium size drawings is their sense of intimacy. To me they are really meant to be held and admired up close and personal. You may have experienced the same thing if you ever saw a painting that you really liked in a book and then saw it in real life. You just realize that there is no substitute for having the genuine article right in front of you - and I hope my work gives you the same feeling.
You'll notice that I visit a wide variety of subjects and styles. This is mostly because I'm not what you'd call a 'mature' artist. I'm still learning, and I sort of hope I'll always be learning :)
Well, you'd think I'd get tired of plum blossomes at some point, but they are rather fun to paint.
I think this one needs some color. But what color? Should I do a wash of something brownish on the trunk or just do a few strokes of color here and there fore accent? Maybe I should go crasy and use little dabs of rainbow colors. Ach, I'l have to think on it. And any advice is welcome, so if you've got an opinion, state it here.
I definitely don't want to detract from the energetice brushstrokes I've already got in place.
This is a big panoramic drawing I am working on right now for a lovely lady down in Florida that I met through Etsy. This is the largest architectural drawing I've ever done. It's 29" wide and quite a challenge to fill with a tiny pencil point and no projector. But it's nearly done... and the closest I got to a beach all summer (not strange for this landlocked body.)
