The Story of Acrylic & Gouache
If only it were like a fairytale....
I love paint. I've been fascinated with it for so long. Since middle school, I wondered what the possibilities were if I could paint. I didn't attempt it often, but when I had the opportunity I loved it. Watercolor upset me in the 6th-grade, but I had to give it another chance.
Years and years go by. I'm a Super Senior in college, still wishing I'd gotten into Introductory Painting. Alas, at a school like Purdue, built for Engineers but not Artists, such a small, 15-student classroom had no room for a non-major. That would be anyone not majoring in something that ends in 'Art'. However, my amazing TA Garet Martin, bless his heart, gave us ample opportunity to use any media we wanted in Drawing II, the advanced drawing class! So I had to take this chance! This was it! It was sink or swim, and I literally came out sputtering for breath when BEHOLD!!
a masterpiece of my own.....
