Hello, my name is Ellie Taylor and I am an artist. I live on a ranch in New Mexico. I paint in acrylic, pastel, charcoal and digital art. I try to do all subjects: landscapes, portraits, animals, still life, western scenes, religious scenes and whatever I can think of or someone requests. My personal philosophy is there are no limits to what you can do in painting. You are only limited by your mind and imagination. If you think you can, then you can, if you think you can’t, then you can’t. There is no subject too hard to paint, just persevere until you get it finished. Don’t be afraid to paint any subject no matter how hard it looks.

I have used the watercolor and the oil b…

I am using a variety of programs, but my main programs are Corel Painter 12, ArtRage Studio Pro, and SketchBook Pro 6, as well as a variety of smaller programs on my Asus TF300T android tablet. These programs are so advanced now that they look just like a traditional painting complete with brush strokes o…
