Hello :wave:
I've been a member of WC for a while now, but I'm what you'd call a lurker :clear: I've been having a go at watercolours for about a year now, I'm really addicted to this meduim, it's so special, but I really need some sort of feedback, (other than family and friends :heart: ). I've decided to have a go at the challenges here and follow any advice given. I've already started the lobster boat challenge.

Thanks in advance for having me :-)

Welcome Deborah.

:thumbsup: on leaving lurkdom and introducing yourself.

The monthly challenges and classes are two excellent ways to practice your skills. You most likely have already checked out the extensive archives of articles, WIP, and previous classes and the Watercolour Handbook.
If not, click on the links in my, Dougs, Sylvia's and many others SIG line.

One of the most important things to do is post your work so others can see it. You will learn much from the comments and suggestions of your fellow artists.



EDIT: I forgot to mention, please join in the Daily Wash and get to know many of us in this forum.

Hi Deborah,
Congratulations for coming out of lurkdom into the light. ;)

Welcome to our wonderful watercolor forum. I think you are on the right path by joining in the challenges. Try out some of the classes too. If you post a painting in the Homework thread of any of them, it will bring it to the top and someone will respond, I'm sure. ;)

Thanks for all the suggestions. I've just found the class thread after rummaging around, so I will be doing some of those :-)

Hi, Deborah! Welcome to the forum!

Hello! I also want to echo what the others have said - the comments and support I've gotten by sharing my paintings help motivate and guide me. This forum is full of Fairy Godmothers/fathers (though Fairy Godfather sounds like a weird movie) of painting!

Hi Deborah.

Welcome and congratulations on emerging from the Lurking Closet; it gets crowded in there! Much more fun outside.

Cheers, Anne
