Hi, I am Nicky from Canada....
Four months ago I started converting from watercolours to acrylic and boy, I am mesmerized.
My favourite subjects are everthing that has a heart beat. This does not necessarily rule out landscapes or still-life, but I seem to be drawn more to wildlife and people.
Not an easy thing to do in acrylics, I have already found out!
I have always expressed myself with art. Went from pencil portraits from life to more detailed abstracts with ink, then discovered pastels and watercolours. I love them all for their specific features but right now I am immersed in working with acrylics.
I am in my late fifties and am hugely enjoying myself and hope to be able to create many, many paintings!
