About Tina Calle

About Me
I am a developing self-taught artist living in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I got a late start because I joined the U.S. Navy and learned computers. I've been in software development ever since (24 years of software now). Halloween became my favorite holiday because I could be my most creative. In 2006, I tried oil painting at a weekend workshop. I wasn't very good but very interested. In 2010, I tried again. Still frustrated, I began looking for help close to my home. I became determined.

So I began painting in earnest January 2013. With the help of several professional painters in my area, I have enjoyed critiques to aid my emerging style. In 2014, I was accepted to work with a renouned wildlife painter with 35 years experience so that I can continue to improve. His 'distance apprenticeship' is a daily communication of tasks he assigns to me and a critique to continue my learning.

I love Direct painting. I like treading between realism and loose impressionism. I exaggerate color and contrast to reflect my fascination with a subject. Finishing a painting in one sitting is ideal. I may paint from life or paint from a combination of reference photographs with a limited palette to create my own work. I paint daily on my favorite medium- oil on hardboard.

I like to get outside to take photographs to bring back and paint. So I'm always looking for groups to join outside on weekends.

I respect every other artist’s unique flare and I embrace opportunities to try new ideas from his/her experiences.

When I started painting, I was told, “Paint what you love.” And I do, Cheers!
