I have many favourite artists ranging from JMW Turner
I could go on – the list is endless! Covering a whole range of artistic mediums, the one thing that all these artists have in common is that they have all found – or should that be ‘developed’ – their own style. Now I realise that finding one’s own particular style doesn’t just happen overnight (unless you happen to be extremely gifted!) – it only comes after hours/years of hard work, experiments, failures, successes…….
At the moment I can’t seem to pinpoint my style – I waver between figurative drawings,
I have been lucky in that I have had both figurative work and a watercolour wash piece exhibited. The difficulty arises when I am asked to describe myself/work in the dreaded artist’s statement as I don’t feel that I have a definitive style!
I would be really interested to hear how other artists (why do I still feel awkward calling myself an artist?) ‘found’ their style – let me know!
Meanwhile I will keep persevering…..
