    I'm almost three times your age and I am nowhere close. Consider yourself lucky. ;-)

    The place is some 80 or 90 km or so to the east of Pretoria (which you will find on a map seeing as it is the capital city) and about 15km east of a smallish town called Bronkhorstspruit (which will...

    I have seen everything from photorealism to very loose impressionism done in pastel. It's a very versatile and powerful medium in the right hands. Which would mean, um, not my hands. ;-)

    It is South Africa indeed. I should have remembered t say so without being asked. I usually do. But I was juggling several different message boards. ;-)

    I visited the small farm where I grew up last weekend, and put some photos on my blog. It is winter now, so perhaps not exactly the kind of thing most people would want to paint. But as with...

    As far as I know, the reason why such toned papers are used is mostly because they make it easy to rapidly create a tonal drawing with a good range of tones. The paper itself serves for the mid...

    If you can get out into the countryside, you just might get an opportunity to dig up your own clay, free of charge and in huge quantities. This is after all the stuff that humans have used for...

    You could probably make your own, or have them made out of wood. If you paint them with a few layers of white acrylic they'll probably work well enough.

    Yes, watercolour is after all SUPPOSED to be a transparent medium, so I don't think cheap ones will necessarily look too bad. I also got myself one of those generic starter sets, and I have no...

    Actually I think there are many parallels, especially as far as enforcement is concerned. In both cases there seems to be a "genie-out-of-the-bottle" effect going on. This seems to be especially true...

    So do I, actually. Or at least, most of the time it is.



    Well, that's a good question. As I mentioned before, I have not seen any very good data or research on this issue. Apparently there are...

    A bit of both. YOU are the one who said it isn't about money, but about respect. But if it is about respect, and I freely use something the divine Michelangelo painted to advertise my new slimming...

    Fan art huh? So it wasn't your original idea either, and now you complain that someone stole it? Very audacious! ;-)

    My apologies if I offended. I did not mean to imply that only amateurs can actually love it. I am rather impressed that you seem to live and breathe art. That is why your work is on a high standard,...

    Yup. I do not look twice at anything with an ugly watermark on it. Neither do I even comment on such images in a forum like this.

    Yes, sort of: the word "amateur" originally meant "for love." I.e. doing something for the love of it rather than the money. It has since acquired the meaning of "bad" or "not so accomplished." Or,...
