What is this? Paint? Actual real, messy paint with brushes/knives/fingers/etc...?
Yep, it's been a long time coming but I finally decided that digital art just didn't quite satisfy my urge to create something beautiful. I'm not saying that digital art isn't beautiful, but I just lost the passion for it (although that is slowly coming back). Instead, I turned to something I haven't bothered with over the best part of the last decade: painting.
I first took up a paintbrush (with the exception of school work, of course) when I was twelve years of age. My mum and I met an artist exhibiting his oil paintings at our local social club and he agreed to give me lessons. Sadly, adolescence eventually had other plans for me. I have since gone back to the oils and also experimented with watercolours (much less messy, but I have to admit I don't get on with them too well), so I thought it wouldn't hurt to post a few pieces on here. Feel free to tell me if you think they're terrible!
Speaking of things that are a long time coming, I am finally, FINALLY, in Germany again
I am spending the next academic year as a teaching assistant in Hamburg and it's already awesome
If you have Twitter, I'm sure I'll be tweeting a lot about it (among other, pointless tweets). You can find my Twitter account and other links over on about.me/azure.oblivion
In the meantime, enjoy the last few summer days, and a very happy autumn to you all
