Hello All,

I am Su (Sujatha), a new member from the UK. Even though I registered as a member last year, I am only starting now as I have just bought the pencil drawing course  :yippee:

I did the stroke and shading exercises.  After a couple of trials I was able to draw lines and flicks pretty confidently.

I would like to do the painting course as well. I thought I would start with pencil drawing  :)

Welcome to Paint Basket, Su.  Yes, starting with the pencil course is the best way to get a good foundation.

Here you will find expert instruction from Nolan and Dennis and lots of friendly people to comment on your work.

We look forward to watching your progress.

 :confused:   I know I sent a welcome message yesterday......   :detective: don't see it today. Another mystery of the web!

Cheers, Val
