 To start with, My name is Dayna Johnson, I am a 52 year old male. I drive truck all over the U.S. I am starting this course because I see a lot of interesting scenery that I would like to be able to draw. Old abandoned farmsteads, windmills and even some very interesting trees. Granted trees are beautiful when they are green and full of leaves or when they turn colors in the fall, but I have noticed that when the leaves fall off, that is when you see the true personality of the tree.
 Anyway, so far I've been learning quite a bit and getting pretty motivated to do this. But being on the road all the time, my internet is on wireless data, so it is somewhat limited on data usage. Still looking forward to the course and finding out what I am able to learn and accomplish.
 Enough for now. Talk more later.

 :bigwelcome: Hello and greetings from PB! Shall I refer to you as DJohnson, DJ, or 'Big D' ?  ;)    ;D   Whichever you prefer, a big welcome to the family.
Are you beginning the 'Let's Draw' course? That is the best place to start especially if you are new to drawing, or even experienced and need a refresher. Lots to learn there. It will have you up and sketching in no time.

I understand the internet issues you go through, I have 'suffered' through many myself as we are on a boat in the Caribbean and do have a habit of moving about quite a bit. Never fear, there will always be someone here waiting to lend a hand if you need one.  O0   I look forward to seeing your work and progression. Pop in as often as you can and have some fun!  :yippee:    :heeha:     :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
