My name is Kyle Surges. I am oil painter with a BFA from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Much of what is found on this site are my opinions and preferences to creating art. I don't expect all artists to completely agree with everything I discuss and of course everybody has his or her own unique way of working. This site simply shares my routine working as a fine artist.
As the title of the website suggests, like many artists, I'm particular about the tools I use and how I paint. I guarantee you will view topics here unseen on other sites; definitely things to consider. You will also find many DIY projects here as well as painting tips and techniques. If you are interested, my art can be seen on my personal website at http://www.kylesurges.com/ . The nit-picky website is not necessarily about my art, but important information I have learned since graduating college. The topics of discussion are of my personal thoughts, ideas, and experiences I have gathered either from other artists or my own.
