the reason i have so few digital art favorites is mostly because i dont understand it... i mean i can understand the concept but other than that i have no idea what it takes to be done, or formed into shapes and layers. I dont know how much labor it needs, compared to traditional art. (traditional art i know very well the efforts it takes in every medium :nod: )
My nieces urge me to do digital at some point or at least try but if i do this then how will i smell the scents coming out of my oil paints, the acrylics, how will i see the washes of the watercolors lay down on the paper making all kind of textures? I am too in love with traditional to let go. :no:

you can show me your girl's work anytime my dear. i will be happy to see it. :love:

Hi there 
I take a couple of hrs doing mine, however depends on what I am doing. The concept takes longer. My books take 2 years plus. I have a technique I do and how I write as well. Unlikely I would let that go.  I understand from this your comments of scents from oil paints.

you are trying to make me feel guilty now cause i gave up on my b/w stuff:tears:...:giggle: (i am only teasing you Peter, ofc you wouldn't want to make me feel guilty, and its definitely not your fault that i feel this way because i have given up on my b/w work...)
jokes aside i believe you are the 'color lover' too,you express yourself through colors amazingly well, at least your gallery verifies that.:nod: :cuddle:

In any case you can always return to monochrome when you feel the time is right. Thank you for complimenting me on my colour sense but I do appreciate good black and white, I think!( Of course I don't want you to feel guilty! ;)

Been wanting to use the white charcoal for a while.. The white is not (what's that word...) applying or putting enough white into the paper, am not an expert in charcoal but is the smooth paper a problem...? NOOB ALERT XD

XRlS Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes i know what you mean...but here's the good news! There's an alternative.Rich,smooth,amazing white highlights with a simple white soft pastel ;)
And about the smooth paper..you can have your own choice about it.Smooth is ok for graphite pencils.For charcoal i prefer a textured paper.But this is only my opinion :)

graphite isn't my strongest point dear, you are much better than i am in it.I will always chose colors over graphite..it didn't turn out bad and it certainly took all the time it needed but during a review i find small things i wonder how would they turn through a different process.

In fact i believe your graphite work needs a little cropping,sharpness and contrast..its a shame such wonderful pieces as yours cant show properly..if you need help on how to do it,send me a note and i will be glad to help :hug:

yeah I noticed that. My kids lost my camera(can't find it anywhere),so I'm taking the pics with my phone which makes them look fuzzy. I guess I could sharpen them up in Phototshop. Any suggestions would be great. Unless you know where my camera is....lol
