My name is Wili. I'm from Hannover, Germany and I'm so sorry, but my english is not so good, but I will try it. I started drawing und painting this year in January and I'm glad to find this online courses. They help me lots. At the moment I use a soft pastel starter set with 24 colours, universal paper in DinA 2 and my fingers for my exercises.

Welcome, Wili.  So happy you found

Yes, the online classes are very helpful.  Keep at it.

You will find lots of support here from the other members.

Your English looks quite good to me (and I am a retired English teacher).

Looking forward to seeing your work.

 :bigwelcome:   Greetings Wili and welcome to Paintbasket!  :yippee:   You and I can grow together as I am also a beginner with pastels.  :heeha: They are so vibrant and exciting! I look forward to seeing your work, and feel free to point out my blunders (I tend to make many  ;D ), and we can help each other along.

If you have any queries or just need a hand, just sing out and someone will be there to help out.  O0

Have fun!  :clap:
Cheers, Val
