Bought the pencil course "Lets Draw" in December  after watching the free hour+ YouTube video. What a great introduction to drawing. Thank you  Nolan!!  I'm 60 years old. took a Beginning Water Color course last fall at our local Community College. That was good but at the end of it I felt I really needed to get much better at basic drawing. I'm about half way through my Berries  drawing, and looking forward to planes and cross hatching.
 So I thought it was time to say Hello to everyone.  Happy Camper from just off the coast of Texas

 :heeha: Well hello and greetings....  :think: I think I shall call you  'Carro' just to shorten things up a bit!  ;)
 :bigwelcome: to PB and the drawing course! Don't forget to post your work for us to have a boo. Also if you have any queries just sing out and we'll be about to lend a hand. I know you will enjoy the program, Nolan is a wiz at getting you drawing things you never thought you could.

I see you are somewhat involved in watercolour, check out Dennis' free starter lessons... they'll have you dancing in the puddles!   :painting:    ;D

I look forward to seeing you around the forum, come often and have some fun!  :yippee:    :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm sure I will after I finish the drawing course. Don't want to many irons on the fire. My real name is Donnie, but that has already been taken, so Carro is just fine.  8)

Aloha Carro (Donnie),

Welcome to PainBasket officially, even though you have been lurking a bit. 

So happy to see that you are taking the "Let's Draw" course.  Absolutely a great way to learn to draw.

Hope you post your work and take part in the Forum conversations.  We do enjoy a great sense of camaraderie here.

:bigwelcome: to the Paint Basket Donnie,  :thankyou: for joining the course.

I think you have made a wise choice to learn pencil drawing as well - it will help you with the painting as well O0 :gl:
