Title: Hello everyone :)
Post by: Liana on August 10, 2014, 07:53:14 PM
Hello Everyone  :) my name is Liana and I am from Alberta, Canada. I am so excited and also a little nervous to be joining the Lets Draw Course and the Pencil Drawing club. At this point I am getting used to navigating through all the features and information on this site, which is very impressive!  This is going to be a big step, posting drawings and well just posting ... well maybe some of you felt the same fears when you began  .... anyways here is my first step forward. My Hello Post!  :blush:

Welcome, Liana.  In no time at all, you'll be freely posting your work with no worries at all.  We are all eager to help. 

I took the Let's Draw course and many of the pencil drawing classes.  They are incredibly worthwhile.  I had NEVER been able to draw anything my whole life until I started taking the PB classes.

Good luck.  Looking forward to seeing your work.

aloha

Welcome Liana!!  You will love it here.  I have learned so much and gotten great support and help with my drawings and paintings.  I too was a little apprehensive to post my drawings but now post even what I am not happy with.  I have gotten advice and improved so much. 

Glad to have you!!   :welcome:

Yay, Liana.  So happy to have you back.

Look forward to seeing your great pencil drawings again.

Are you planning to branch out into color now?  Your drawings would lend themselves well to line and wash.

Jump in!
