The medium I use is water media, mainly watercolor and sometimes acrylics, depending upon my mood and what I want to accomplish. I sometimes use watercolor pencils to draw my subject on either paper or canvas as well. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.

If one can capture the eyes of whatever the subject, then you have the soul of the painting.
