This is my artwork, older (some so old they’re from high school) and newer. These were done in pencil, charcoal, oil pastels, watercolour paints, or even markers. I actually really hate a lot of these, especially the older ones that are so bad, but I’m posting all of them anyway because if I go through them I’ll only end up posting about five of them. Many of them are clearly bad. Those are likely the ones I did when I was younger or first starting out with a specific medium or style. A friend (and a real artist) once told me not to disregard my older work that isn’t so good, but rather to let it show my progress as an artist. A few of these are also incomplete, and one of the incomplete ones has been altered in the middle with a photo-editing tool because I had an idea for it that I just never got around to. I may never actually finish the incomplete ones.
The first painting is mine, but the image I painted is not my own. I was never able to find the original artist, but I loved the image and wanted to paint it.
The last painting is the most recent. I painted for my girl for her birthday. That is the only one done in oil paints.
So here’s my artwork, the good, the bad and the ugly!
