Hello I'm Ria, I'm a homeschooled highschool student, I also blog at Liber Parma and ChesterTeens and I love art. Art has always been one of my favorite pastimes but only recently I have started taking "real" art classes and have enjoyed them immensely (and look forward to more advanced classes next year). I am absolutely thrilled to be joining this blog! Thank you for letting a "student member" join. I have loved reading (and looking at) this blog in the past and find it rather hard to believe that I am posting on it now.
Although I am not satisfied with the majority of my artwork the examples you see below are two that I actually like.
This picture, of Father Karol Wojtyla, is done with a pencil, which is and has been for a long time just about my favorite medium. Recently I have been learning about and expirementing with acrylics and find them very enjoyable and easy to work with.
