I am inspired by the great masters and their use of oils, as well as many modern day artists who use a variety of different media and materials, and a lot of my inspiration also comes from nature.
Every medium has its own advantages and qualities, and although I do not have any real preference anymore, watercolour (close to oils) is definitely near the top of my favourite media, I love it because it's versatile and at times really challenging, with its lovely qualties of texture and colour. With oils it's obvious to me just why the great masters were such fans; acrylics are carefree to work with, and colour pencils give a refined quality which allows for great(er) detail, whereas watercolours allow for more freedom of expression, especially suitable for portraits. With its liveliness it's also a wonderful medium for landscapes, waterscenes etc.
