Re: New member
Welcome to WC! Lots of fine folks here, you will meet some of them as you browse about.
There is an active Decorative Arts / Faux Finishes forum and they are always willing to help.
My own advice would be to go out with a camera and take as many photos as you can of brick walls. Pin the photos to the wall. study, wait. study. decide. change mind. study. go and take more photos. especially in the oldest neighborhoods in your area. I find the best pix are done at sunset and sunrise. and who said bricks have to be red?????
Always glad to see new members, hope you have time to explore all the different Forums. There are all levels of artists creating, sharing, teaching and exploring in virtually all mediums. There are many tutorials available, and the friendly folks will help you with any questions.
Be sure to check out the Photography Forum, too. No camera is required! This is the place to share any of your photos and to see what is going on.
Looking forward to seeing your art, too.
Life is good
