Hello!

Hi,

my first post on the forum! A big "hi" from me!

Found this forum a couple of months ago, and registered quite recently and thought it was about time I posted something.

I'm getting back into art after a long break (with the odd failed painting and adhoc doodles while listening to a boring phone meetings at work). I loved art at school, and thought about going to art school, but went to college for IT instead. Getting back into now as the kids are getting a bit older and were wanting some help with art homework etc.

Discovered Arcylics and canvases (used to paint badly in gouache on paper previously) and I'm loving them. Doing a bit of pen and water colour washes on thicker paper as well.

Trying to get a few paintings and illustrations finished so I can add them to a basic website I'm trying to setup

I'm sure I'll have loads of questions, for instance how to upload some pictures to the forum, can you cross post them if they match 2 different forums etc

I'm based in Scotland, UK

Regards,

Scott M.

Re: Hello!

Welcome to the WC Community, Scott.
Be sure to read the user agreement and also the FAQ link in my signature line- both will answer many of your questions.
Yes, you may post the same work in two different forums.
FYI:
* 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 such as how to upload an image
* 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

Re: Hello!

Thanks for the welcome messages and tips! I'll have a read through the guides before trying to post anything (I think I read somewhere that you need 6 posts before uploading an image)
