Hi Jan, :bigwelcome: to the site.

We all make mistakes, all the time. Luckily that is what keeps us so enthusiastic about painting - we are constantly improving and learning new things. Dennis has been painting from when the mountains were still hills  >:D and he will be the first to tell you that he is also still learning how to paint all the time.

Now we can grow together which makes it a lot more fun than struggling along on your own.

If you need to know how to use / do anything on our site, just ask and I'll do my best to assist.

Why not post one or two of your paintings so we can see the lovely work you do?

Oh, and Nolan...Dennis is going to get you for that!  :2funny:  :knuppel2:  :2funny:
