Hails from Iceland
Iceland calling.

Hello everybody. Signed up for these forums a couple of weeks ago, looked like a good place for learning stuff and getting critique. Been a bit shy about posting, this might be a good start.

I live in Iceland on a farm with my family, keeping a small flock of sheep, horses, a couple of dogs and a barn cat.

I have drawn all my life, dabbled a little bit in painting, but never very serious. Lately I have decided I need to learn more (and practice!) .The goal is making complete works "worthy of being put up a wall".

For now I am mainly studying value, still avoiding color. I work in charcoal, graphite, ink, and a couple of months ago I discovered silverpoint, which is very intruiging, and not as difficult to get into as expected (got a piece of silverwire from a acquaintance who used to make jewellery, made a stylus out of it, concocted a ground from chalc and acrylic wallpaint, and voila).

Next step is gathering courage to show some of my work...

Till then, E.J.H.

Hello, EJH
Be sure to visit the Drawing and Sketching Forum if you have not done so thus far.
Many new members are hesitant at first but soon see how encouraging our members are to each other. Be sure to note in any image upload whether or not you desire critique of your work.
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
* 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: Iceland calling.

Hello EJH ... welcome.

I invite you to check out our Drawing and Sketching forum (link in my signature). To learn things more specific we also have a drawing classroom where all classes are free. There is a lot to learn, of course, but all it takes is practice and a bit of dedication.

You live in a beautiful country both for painting/sketching and for photography.

Enjoy the journey!

Re: Iceland calling.

Thanks vmrs, sparrowhawk, and talisman.
I think it is high time to dive in. There must be an inktober topic here somewhere?
I have kept up with the first 7 prompts. About time I posted them somewhere.
