I started really taking an interest in art at a rather late age, and began with about five years of watercolor. I still love watercolor, but have never felt completely comfortable with it and for the most part just find myself frustrated.
About two years ago I tried working with pen & ink and colored pencil and feel like I've really found my niche! I still flounder around a bit with the watercolors, but I love the control I have particularly with colored pencil and when stippling with pen & ink.
This is the first colored pencil piece I did in April 2007.
