Hello and how do you do...?

Hello from London. A forty-something gentleman, returning to the world of drawing after 25 years away... I'll be asking lots of questions. At the moment I am a Jack of many disciplines, and looking forward to a degree of mastery of some...

Re: Hello and how do you do...?

Thank you for the welcomes... I can see there's a lot of info re. resources, techniques and the like here - and that's exactly what I need! Aside from a lot of practice... I rush things, 'cos I get bored and frustrated, that's my problem....

Re: Hello and how do you do...?

Hi JayCee! Welcome!

I think we all tend to rush into things a bit as artists as its a constant learning scale.. Part of it is the adventure we see as we approach the next painting or drawing, yup always something new on the horizon.

Don't forget to check out all the forums.. and into yourself in the forums you are interested in. Lots of wonderful easy going artists that can steer you along your path, great tutorials too.
Have fun!

Re: Hello and how do you do...?

Ok, there is SO much here to look at - if I want some C&C's re. my pencil drawings, should I post them in 'Drawing and Sketching' or 'Open Critiques'? Or somewhere else?

You can post your drawings in as many places as it'll fit into (pencil, animal, crit...the more eyes, the more ideas).

I hope to see you around
Welcome to Wet Canvas! Enjoy

Welcome to WC!

Lots of fine folks here, you will meet some of them as you browse about. Sharing with others is the best way to fan the creative flames.

Always glad to see new members, hope you have time to explore all the different Forums. There are all levels of artists creating, sharing, teaching and exploring in virtually all mediums. There are many tutorials available, and the friendly folks will help you with any questions.

Be sure to check out the Photography Forum, too. No camera is required! This is the place to share any of your photos and to see what is going on.

Looking forward to seeing your art.

Life is good!

Greggo
