Happy New Year to all of you!
It's been so long since I've been active here on DeviantArt. Many of the folks I used to watch on DA have gone on to other things or have moved to other sites for sharing their art. I'm not even sure if any of my old pals here on DA are still around. If you are, give me a shout sometime. I'd love to hear from my old friends again and would welcome making new friends, too.
I've been missing-in-action for a while because of lack of time. Travelling a long way to and from work everyday does not leave much personal time to draw (I don't even have much time for sleeping!). I'm soo missing art in my life. My art supplies have been gathering dust the past few years and I always feel sad seeing that. Hopefully, this year I'll be more active here on DA and draw more.
My art resolution this year is to explore. I want to experiment in new styles and learn how to work in colours - watercolours, coloured pencil, digital, anything really. I still love my graphite pencils, but sometimes I feel a little too limited in that and I feel like I'm just staying within my comfort zone because I get too frustrated trying to learn to work with new mediums (media?). You may see more colour work from me and they'll probably be bad at first (it might just go straight to scraps folder), so just bear with me until I figure out how to use it.
Well, we'll see how it goes. If you see more graphite work from me this year than colour, I probably chickened out. If that happens, you are welcome to give me a kick on my behind and tell me to go back out there and use colour!
How about you, do you have any resolution for your art in the new year?
