PE: Watercolour and saltWatercolour and saltPE: Watercolour and salt1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Watercolour painting provides us with fantastic possibilities to create various textures. They can be achieved in many different ways with use of many different side components and equipment - in this article, I'll focus on salt textures. It usually takes time to get a handle of it - like everything else - but the outcome is definitely worth it.
Water and pigment
The three factors that determine the effects are the amount of water, amount of pigment and amount of salt, with the two first being the harder part. The more water you use, the more time it takes for the paint to dry and the more time the salt has to work - therefore the pigment will be pushed further away and you'll get bigger, paler spots between darker pigment borders. Less water will get you smaller, star-like
December Feature and UpdateWell, not much to update. Currently in finals week, but with my talent for procrastination I have lots of time for art :3 I am also applying at colleges, and just a lot going on right now. But I get to see my boyfriend in about five days, the last time I saw him was in the summer, so it will be a delight and if I'm lucky he'll let me do some face painting on him. Christmas is my favorite holiday! So how about a feature, first my newer works and then other magnificent workDecember Feature and Update1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The next two works are based off of a photography project from my teacher to try to imitate the work of Kyle Thompson. If you want to see more of this work and follow it more closely, check out my BLOG you will find work on there that will not or has not yet made it to my DA account.

9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa

My Chihuahua Mia (2007-2011) on Halloween
Hi Everyone!! Christmas is around the bend and i just wanted to remind you PLEASE DO NOT buy someone a dog for a Christmas present! 40% of these "gifts" end up in shelters or pounds due to lack of interest or unwanted responsibility. I am a HUGE dog lover and have had several over my years. I see people often who have no business owning a pet and it tears me up inside.
Please read this and do your research before purchasing a dog. Not all breeds are for everyone. The !0 commandments as a dog sees it: (reposted)
My life is likely to last 10-15 years: Any separation from you will be painful for me. Remember that!
2.Give me time to understand what you want from me: don't be impatient,
short tempered or irritable.

Hello to all members of Global-Photos
I thought it would be fun to have a contest. I really like contests!
Even if you don't win, it's nice to participate - you can show your work to others!
So, what is my idea for this contest?
To run a contest in 2 categories, Photography and Photomanipulation, with the theme "LIGHTs".
What do I want to see?
Anything related to light: it can be a candle, a fireplace, a rainbow, a strange glow, sun rays, xmas lights, dim light or bright light (but, please photographers, don't photograph the sun!: you'll ruin your camera, your eyes and ours!).
Some examples of beautiful lights:

This article explores a few quick pointers that you can keep in mind when attempting to shoot perfect portraits. There are many rules, many tutorials and plenty of tips and advice out there. Google will give you thousands! But this article will sum up some of the most important ones. Enjoy!
Shallow Depth of Field: A wide aperture setting on your camera ensures that you get a professionally blurred background that brings the focus of your image onto your model.
Sharp Focus: Eyes are the window to the soul! Therefore ensure that your models eyes are clearly and sharply in focus. If you're struggling, manually focus the lens of the camera yourself to make sure you get sharp, clear results.
Balance the lighting: You can use a reflector to bounce light into the eyes of your model and make use of the shadows to create a flat
