Yael nodded, humming in acknowledgement. Inside, she was a little dissatisfied, but unsurprised. Bernadette did seem like the kind of person who would go for hyperrealism -- Yael, on the other hand, was not. She knew that hyperrealistic paintings required an immense amount of skill, but she thought it was just boring -- why paint something to look like something that already existed? That was no different than photography. Painting gave the artist certain freedoms that mediums like photography didn't have. In terms of her own paintings, Yael liked to bring something new to the table every time; she studied obsessively and raved about the masters, but she refused to be like them. Yael wanted to be original and inimitable.

"My style is pretty varied," Yael explained. "You could say that my general style combines elements of impressionism and expressionism. I like textures, and I mainly use oil paints. Sometimes I like to go the surrealistic route, and a lot of my paintings incorporate chiaroscuro."

Yael knew that she was kind of all over the place in terms of style. But why choose just one? Yael was the artist -- she could do whatever the hell she wanted. So she chose to take her favorite elements of all different styles of paintings and incorporate them into her own personal style. Art was an expression; Yael loved sensations, like color and texture, so better to amplify them in her interpretations than just paint it like it appeared in reality.
