Paul Gunson - Over 30 days ago
just beautiful. I think this is my favourite piece in your folio so far.
Paul Gunson - Over 30 days ago
I also think that you're underselling yourself a little with your assessment of your own abilities, ratings wise...
Rebecca Sinclair - Over 30 days ago
Thanks so much Paul, I wasn't sure how high to rate myself..since I'm a young artist and just beginning to get my name out there, I didn't want to set the bar too high.
Paul Gunson - Over 30 days ago
I know it's tricky. I don't really know whether anybody pays attention to the ratings - I think the best guide to your skill level is your folio. I've been a member of other sites where people give themselves expert ratings when they can barely hold a pencil. Generally, although I'm reluctant to rate myself too highly - I just sort of go on how others rate themselves with a similar skill and follow on that. Truth is that we can all learn new things all the time!
Rebecca Sinclair - Over 30 days ago
Thats very true! On one hand you don't want to sell yourself short but you also don't want to over step the level that you are at. I have had similar problems with pricing artwork, deciding whats too much or not enough is never easy. Thanks for your feedback though, I really appreciate it!

About Me:
Hi I'm Rebecca! Since I was really little, creating art has been a big part of my life. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Painting at Western Michigan University.

I have enjoyed working with oils, pastels, colored pencils, charcoal, printmaking, and airbrush.

For the past six years, I have been doing commissioned work. Recently, I was hired to illustrate a twenty-two page children's book. Illustrating children's books has been something that I have always wanted to do with my art. I love being able to create pictures to tell a story and share that story with others.
