The Scientist by annsquare
The Scientist
Long time no acrylic!  I was very surprised at how much I was using this medium like watercolors, tsk tsk..  I love the fact that it's so easy to control for transparency with acrylics, and the 3D effects it can achieve for skin tones.  However, paint drying up to plastic films on my palette was a something I had to constantly battle and keep in mind!

This was a piece I painted earlier this summer for The Varsity, the oldest student newspaper at my university:

pencil, acrylics

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Ann is an tireless learner who aspires to become an artist, scholar, leader, neuroscientist and world traveller. She enjoys reading, painting, listening to TED talks, playing badminton and long talks with inspirational friends. Her works are features in multiple publications, including Wisdom Crieth Without (online and print magazine), The Varsity (U of Toronto newspaper and magazine), and The Spectatorial (Victoria College speculative arts blog and magazine).

For the past couple years on Deviant Art, I've always been wary of being too personal. I didn't want to share my stories, where I lived, or even how old I am because I've been battling with my own insecurities. When you cannot be true to yourself, it's very difficult to establish trust in others, especially strangers.

But I'm working hard to change this. I know now that, without accepting vulnerability, without asking for help, my life would be stagnant. Without presenting my real self to the world, I cannot understand and get to know other people.

So here are contact points for my personal information and true stories. I trust that you will not misuse anything, but that we can become friends!

Hi Annsquare, thanks for your support! You are right to open up to the world! You would be missing so much without it. There's a big chance in it - and of course, risks at well. That's life, online or offline. Hope to see more of your beautiful images!
