How long have you been creating?
I’ve been painting for about 3 years.
I have always enjoyed drawing, but never thought I was good enough to become an “Artist”. I started painting and really enjoyed it! I shared a few of my works with my friends and eventually one of them asked to buy a piece. After that happened a few more times, I decided to create Rogue Duck. I’ve been selling art ever since!
I usually paint with acrylic on canvas, but I’ve been experimenting recently with some watercolor and marker pieces. I also enjoy crafting and will make various projects out of cardboard and things I find around my house.
I find inspiration in a lot of places. I enjoy painting a lot of fan art, so my favorite characters from different media inspire me. My grandmother was an amazing artist who painted beautiful landscapes. I keep those around my house for inspiration, as well. She really admired Bob Ross and used a lot of similar techniques in her artwork. I also follow a few artists online that are simply incredible. Andy Gill makes these AMAZING colored pencil portraits. Edie Barthelemes is a friend of mine who makes these gorgeous mixed-media abstract pieces and beautiful paint pours. Leonid Afrimov is a fantastic oil painter who has a masterful command of color. All of the people above inspire me to keep practicing and keep creating so that maybe one day I can be as good as them!
I was once commissioned to do four separate octopus pieces by four different people. I became legitimately worried that I would only be painting octopuses for the rest of my career.
Probably the saturation in the art market. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can find almost any art you want for almost any price you’re willing to pay. It makes it more difficult to sell pieces for a reasonable price.
Edie Barthelmes! She’s an amazing artist who does paint pours and mixed-media pieces. I love her choice of colors and the composition of her pieces. Check her out here: Facebook.com/edieseccentricities
