Hello Everyone  :) my name is Liana and I am from Alberta, Canada. I am so excited and also a little nervous to be joining the Lets Draw Course and the Pencil Drawing club. At this point I am getting used to navigating through all the features and information on this site, which is very impressive!  This is going to be a big step, posting drawings and well just posting ... well maybe some of you felt the same fears when you began  .... anyways here is my first step forward. My Hello Post!  :blush:

Welcome, Liana.  In no time at all, you'll be freely posting your work with no worries at all.  We are all eager to help. 

I took the Let's Draw course and many of the pencil drawing classes.  They are incredibly worthwhile.  I had NEVER been able to draw anything my whole life until I started taking the PB classes.

Good luck.  Looking forward to seeing your work.

Hi Liana and a big welcome to this wonderful painting family.  Every one here is more than willing to help on any problem, and you will get such wonderful encouragement from fellow painters.  It's a wonderful site, and great people.  Our tutors are fantabulous....fun, so informative, helpful, and I know you'll be happy here.

 :bigwelcome:    Hi Liana.  :wave:   You couldn't have chosen a better group to learn with. Great support, fantabulous teachers, and a somewhat riotous cheering section all rolled into one.  ;D

Come often, and enjoy!   :yippee:

Welcome Liana!!  You will love it here.  I have learned so much and gotten great support and help with my drawings and paintings.  I too was a little apprehensive to post my drawings but now post even what I am not happy with.  I have gotten advice and improved so much. 

Glad to have you!!   :welcome:

Hi Liana,
I am joining the others to  :welcome:  you!

In a very short time you won't feel nervous at all.   Many of us are also beginners, but the mix of accomplished artists and beginners makes it for a wonderful fun and learning environment.   You will soon find out what treasure you have found.

The instructors are simple extraordinary in all aspect.

Relax, draw, have fun, and learning will come in a very positive way.

Welcome to Paintbasket  :hug:
Cheers, Annie
