Hi everyone!

Hi everyone

I spent a lot of my childhood drawing (in graphite/charcoal) but didn't persue it either academically or as a hobby. I dabbled in acrylics a couple of years ago to 'overcome my fear of colour' but life took over and I stopped again.

In an effort to 'do more art' I started doing the Inktober52 challenges on Instagram (@beaniepot_art), but there isn't much interaction, so after finding WetCanvas, I finally decided to join up. I'm really looking forward to being part of an art community and getting some inspiration to continue!

I'm a bit of a newbie/dabbler in most things but would like to learn watercolour and would really appreciate any tips on loosening up my painting/drawing style!

Thanks so much

Re: Hi everyone!

Welcome to the forum.

This is a terrific community and a wonderful resource, use the rolling menu bottom right and you will find forums for just about every art and craft medium here, including Pen and Ink. It's worth exploring the full list of the forums. Read the posting rules at the top of the forums there may be restricted posting.

The links in the top line of my signature will help with the forum and how to resize and post your pictures. You can start uploading pictures on your third post.

A frequent question is "Where are my files?" When you get the uploader box and browse for your photos, make sure you select "All files" or you will not see your jpg files.



If you have a particular site problem, click on my name and send me a private message (pm).

Doug

Re: Hi everyone!

Hi!
I'm new here too.
Like you, I took a long break from drawing and painting, even though it was something I always loved to do. I'm starting to dabble in watercolor, acrylics and pastels too. Like you, hoping to stay inspired and so happy I found this group. Best of luck with your art!
