I'm a 29 year old woman from Finland. I've been drawing since I was a kid but I never pursued drawing as a real passion which is a shame. I even quit the hobby nearly entirely during high school. I spent 10 years not actively drawing but after both of my grandparents passed away, I started to feel like I'm wasting my life just going to work and then sitting at the computer playing games for the rest of the day. So I picked up pencil and paper again.|
Figuring out my desired medium has been a long road of trial and error. I dislike actual digital painting quite a bit and fell completely in love with colored pencils but in time it became painfully obvious how much time and patience color pencils require. So I spent a lot of money and time in figuring out what to use in tandem with colored pencils. Watercolors seemed like the most rational choice and I'm now slowly starting to dive into their world.
