"Never Stop Expanding Your Knowledge"

James Carter Art Blog

Art blog sharing all things art, tips tricks, art history, and my personal techniques. 

Gallery of all my artworks, paintings, drawings, and my personal favourite works.



Having a strong passion for artwork has allowed me to experiment with all different styles and media, but I landed on realism, and coloured pencil drawing to be my favourite, as I feel I can achieve a much higher level of details with coloured pencils. 

I believe in practice makes progress, because come on, no one is perfect; which means I intend to practice to progress my skill and knowledge of artwork, and never stop learning about art, and how I can push myself to be a better artist.

I am practically self-taught when it comes to realism art.  My college course does not really focus much on realistic works, as realism is not the style for everyone; but thanks to my awesome teachers, they have allowed me to develop my skill in my chosen field of art, which is of course realism, and they help me when they can to give constructive criticism to help me improve and develop beyond what I even thought I was capable of.  

I'm not held back by what I am good at,  I love expanding my knowledge of art in all forms, I found that coloured pencils allow me to achieve a very high level of details, but as I have developed over time as an artist, I have expanded into painting as well.  

I write on my blog as often as I can to provide you with tips, tricks, and any bits of knowledge of art I have.  

Some posts are formal, some are personal, feel free to explore my blog, and comment on anything you would like me to write about.
