Hello. Need advice where to post?

Hello, I have just joined wc and would like to know where to post simple questions about oil painting? My questions are, HOW do I get myself motivated to actually paint, when I am overloaded with ideas and choice of styles and a fledgling ability? Also, how do you (painters) sketch? Draw first and transfer, or draw on the canvas with a pencil or simply begin an underpainting with the drawing sketched out within it? Thanks.

Re: Hello. Need advice where to post?

Hello and welcome to the WC Community.
Head on over to the Oil Painting Forum.
* You can access any Forum by using the “Forum Jump” located at the bottom right of the screen or the Channels drop down menu at the upper left
* Moderators and Guides have links in their Signature lines to address FAQ’s
* There are “Stickys’' (permanent threads that “stick” at the top of all thread listings) that are full of helpful information.
*You can use Google Advanced Search to help you locate topics of interest on WC by simply entering WetCanvas in the blank asking for a domain name
* You must have two written posts prior to being able to upload an image (there is a link below in my signature line to a video of how-to-upload)

When you are reading a post inside a thread, as you are now, you will notice another blue bar just atop of your first post. Look toward the right and you will see the Thread Tools option and here is where you click to see options such as choosing to subscribe for an Email update to the thread or add the thread to your favorites so you may easily find it in the future.

Re: Hello. Need advice where to post?

Sure, start posting those questions in the oil forum.🙂 You will certainly have others who will share their experiences and thoughts.
You can post your questions in other forums too. There is a Creativity forum. A Drawing and Sketching forum I can think of off hand.
We have a lot of great forums to check out! Near the top of every page you will see “Content”. Click that and you will see a drop box. Click on “Discussion”, and it will take you to the page with all the forums. I find that the easiest.
Once you start a thread, or contribute to a thread, an easy way to see if more responses are on those threads, is to go to “My WC”. My homepage opens to this as I stay signed in. Click it and any threads you are involved with, with new activity, appear. This is faster than going to the forums page and navigating to find threads you want. Also you can favourite and save threads or posts you like. To favourite, just click above the post. See, ^^on this post (add to favourites), and at the top of the thread under “thread tools”.
The impossible is only the untried...
True failure is never even trying...
Inevitably some attempts will end up in the trash. Continue anyway. Perseverance can trump undeveloped, procrastinating, or fearful talent.
