Hey! I'm Carol, a 60+ wife, mother and grandmother. I started drawing for the first time (other than horses as a girl) in March, after using cheap colored pencils in adult coloring books. I bought more expensive pencils and also became interested in watercolors, after observing my 89 year old mother's art lessons. Long story short, I'm addicted to both mediums and have graduated to artist grade watercolors, Polychromos and Albrecht Durer pencils (combining both of my passions) and all varieties of paper and accoutrements. I'm currently self taught from WetCanvas and YouTube, but I look forward to taking classes as my schedule allows. What a learning curve, but I'm in for the long haul!
