I have been looking for a group that accepts portraits of all kinds of mediums.
I am British (born in the Channel Islands-please remember these islands are under the UK, but have their own local government) but have been living in Scotland for 28 years.
I used to do a lot of portraits but ‘freehand’ took a back seat for a long time.
I recently picked up the pencils again, but now have the added technology of Photoshop where I can add some mixed media background and depth to my original freehand portraits. I really enojy doing celbrity portraits; mainly ‘legendary’ ones!
My gallery is full of variety: digital art, mixed media, photography, freehand. I love creating greeting cards also.
I am 53 years young and have loved art all my life!
Just thought I would pop by and introduce myself.
Cheers and have a great day!
Nice to say hello to you !
I’m a retired Policeman, two of our sons left the the army and they are both serving Police Officers. I do not have any talent for drawing at all but discovered digital photography a few years back, after joining June Whitfields funeral club and received a small digital camera for doing so ! My wife Anne & I live in Newton-le-Willows, which is mid way between Liverpool & Manchester. Most of my work is landscape but I do tinker about with a little abstract stuff. I have just done a couple of portrait shots which I have yet to put in my gallery. I can’t get to grips with Adobe Photoshop. I use Serif, Picasa 3 and OptikverveLabs (all one word). I look forward to seeing your work. Once again, nice to meet you Angie.
Nice yo meet you, Angie. Thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself.
