Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!

Same subject - 2 mediums
I've wanted to do this for awhile.... and today I did! I wanted to show the same subject in a few different media, in order to show what a different presentation they would make. Here is the proof!
The same reference picture ... one done in oil pastels and the other done in watercolor. You can certainly see that they come from the same reference - however - the overall sense of the finished piece is quite different. Interesting! Both the media (and the technique required to use it) and the supports are completely different. Predictably, the finished works look completely different!
