    What sort of artist are you? Do you love the realism of photography, the abstract strokes of watercolour, or messy charcoal?

    Share your favourite art medium here! :awesome:

    To use it's probably pens and pencils

    To look at it's oil paints - they look so detailed and realistic, I really appreciate the skill that went into creating something like that.

    This is probably my favourite oil painting:

    My favourite artistic medium would be the word for its sheer power to evoke emotion, as well as its relative ease of use in modern times. However, if I had to choose a visual artistic medium, it would probably be acrylic paint for its bold, bright colours:

    I used to be a big fan of plain old pencil and paper but I'm experimenting a lot more with watercolour and ink now. I'm still always going to be attached to my digital art though, mostly just because it requires the least commitment!

    I'm not entirely sure. A Google reverse image search - and a search for "Leonid Afremov" - returns many images which look very similar but not exactly the same. This one, for example, has slightly thinner tree trunks, and no arm-rest on the bench. Afremov has done many, many paintings, so I wouldn't rule out it being one of his. That said, however, there are no signatures nor identifying marks of any kind on the painting, so perhaps it was painted by another artist in the style of Leonid Afremov? Indeed, my (Google-based ) research on him seems to suggest that he paints predominantly in oil rather than acrylic.

    My favourite to use is just pen and ink, with bright inks for colouring. My favourite to view is watercolour and I particularly love combinations of watercolour and inks - hopefully I can learn how to paint in watercolours someday!

    Ink is rather like water colour in how you paint it I think, they appear to have a similar consistency

    Fine line pens, brush pens, pencils, watercolour and ink since I find them to be the easiest to control and make cool artwork

    Mostly portraits, although lately I've been doing a lot of journaling so it's kind of a mix of things. Some nature here and there. Sometimes I'm just having fun mixing paints together! How about you?

    Has to be oil painting there is nothing better then seeing a thick paste of oil paint form into an image and the smoothness is incredible. Sketching probably comes a close second because the results are very immediate.
