I just joined today. I prefer to use oil paint, but am learning about other mediums. I am a beginner in all of them, just starting to learn. I joined to learn, to get and give critiques and feedback, because that's how I improve. Sentiments such as "You're really good" from dear friends don't help. I want you to tell me what works and what needs changed, even suggesting how to improve it. I do not use solvents of any kind.
