"The dilemma every artist confronts, again and again, is when to stick with familiar tools and materials and when to reach out and embrace those that offer new possibilities......." Art and Fear
I want to try everything - according to Art and Fear I am in the young artist phase and its as I become more sure of myself that I will settle to fewer mediums. In the meanwhile I go on buying more and different mediums in the hope one will speak to me loud enough to tell me this is the one!
I love graphite, but I also find it rather easy so feel that I wont reach with it because it is not such a struggle. Whereas oils are a daily challenge, from mixing the paint to applying it. Its a battle of wills and I often wonder who will win it - me or the paint. Maybe watercolour will be a happy medium for me!
