Hi all I thought that i had better introduce myself although i have been a member now for a few weeks,  just wanted to tell you a bit about myself, my name is jenny lynn and i live in a town by the name of leominster in england, we are about 12 miles from the city of hereford ( where the hereford bulls come from)   I am married with four sons, five grandchildren!  my husband is now retired and i finished work last year.  I used to do a lot of drawing when i was a teenager but then got married had children and the drawing went to the wayside!   now i have plenty of time on my hands have decided to start again!  Interested in doing watercolours and pastels, have started the watercolour lessons
so glad that i found this site, through the internet by googling.  everyone is so helpful and dennis & nolan thankyou for setting up this site!   for a beginner like myself it is brilliant! fantastic!  already posted a few drawings and my first attempts at watercolour on the forum and have had constructive replies thankyou to you all.   :yippee: :hug:

Isn't it nice when you can sit back and take time for yourself?  :)  Shame it takes most of us a lifetime to get there!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

 :welcome: Jenny Lynn, it's nice to have you with us.  Thanks for the intro.

 I wish you a very happy retirement.  Mine has been enhanced to no end since I joined Paintbasket.

Hi again Irene. 

For new ones, it can, at first, be a bit confusing to navigate around the site, but you'll soon catch on.

We're here to help if you wish to ask questions.
