        I marked several of them, as I like to use several mediums...but that's just me.

          I have a lot of mediums that I love to work with... oil, watercolor, pencils (sketching)...I love dance and sewing so I picked those too.
          But by far the medium I now work with most is pen-and-ink. I just love it! Especially when in conjunction with watercolors.

          Great question!!

            Hmmm, as an artist (which I am not) or as an enthusiast (which I am)?

            For that I'd have to say oils, but I have an engraving from the Louvre that is stunning.

            I do work with Photoshop though, so maybe in a way I am an artist, LOL... Well.

              Good question! I voted as an artist, but as an enthusiast I like a lot of things I never got to work with, like stone, glass, metal...

                Wow, I picked a tonne of options! :D

                I have a budding art collection and I tend to be most attracted to photographic art (non digital) and acrylic on canvas.

                In museums, I often find myself admiring sculptures.


                When it comes to making art myself, good ol' pen/pencil and paper are my weapons of choice, be it for writing or drawing.
                I am also beginning to put together some mixed media canvasses and shadow boxes, using my favourite media: metal, wood and fabric. And I dance everytime I get a chance.


                I love music and hopefully one day I will be able to write my own melodies. I want to learn how to play the Celtic harp

                  As an artist, my medium of choice is the good 'ole pencil...in varying grades of course. :D Acrylic would be second.

                    I didn't think of that. Either one. I was thinking more as an artist, but it's open to interpretation.

                      My favorite is probably digital art (photoshop) with acrylics and sculpey running a close second.

                      I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
                      I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
                      so I love you because I know no other way
                      than this:
                      so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
                      so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

                        My all time favorite would be ceramics, but oil painting which I have only taken classes for are also fun, but Waaaaaaaay expensive for a hobby right now. Not that ceramic is cheaper, but it is and always will be my favorite. My goal is in about 5 years or so I will own a home with room for an art studio and gas kiln (large, expensive, but very pretty stuff) and raku kiln. Pencil and ink drawings are always fun too for short term expression.

                              My favorite is a combination of watercolors and ink. Then I like to add a top layer(s) of homemade tempura. It makes everything kind of transluscent and shiny. The more layers, the more depth to the piece.
