Darrell, How Did You Develop Your Style?

Honestly, I don’t believe I developed my style as much as I believe my style developed me and made me into the artist I am today. I have had no formal artistic education,I am self taught. The style that I do have is all my own. I don’t like the feeling I’m copying someone elses style ,I like being me and doing some things my way. I even prefer using a wooden matchstick,I don’t use brushes.

What Mediums Do You Prefer?

Presently, I am using and prefer acrylics. In the past I have sketched with a charcoal pencil , and have started out using pastels. I haven’t tried oils ,perhaps that may become an entity for the future.

What Else Are You Up To?

I have recently joined the Duxbury Art Association, here in Duxbury,Mass., near my home. I go to a park every morning with my dog and have breakfast.I get a lot of inspiration from the wildness of this park, my dog likes it there too.

What Are Your Goals within the ETChster Community?
