As a young artist, I enjoyed using pencil as a medium to convey my artistic renderings, as it allows me to apply the most intricate of details to my work. I couldn't stand working in the abstract. As I started dabbling more with color - whether it be pastel, acrylic, or water color - I learned how to replace the fine pencil details with blocks of color. I learned how much more texture and dimension I could create with other mediums, and how to use white space to accentuate.
