This thread is to track my progress in the Let's Draw course!  My mother and grandfather are accomplished artists, but I've never really been able to draw.  I have three kids and a full-time job, so my life is hectic.  Looking for a new hobby to help me relax, and also to help me spend meaningful time with my girls (they love sitting at the table with me while I watch the videos and draw).  Additionally, it is truly a life-long dream of mine to be able to draw well, so I'm excited to give this a try!

Meredith,

So happy you found Paintbasket.  Nolan and Dennis will make an artist out of you in a very short time.  And you'll have a great bunch of supporters on the Forum.

I too came from an artistic family without a single bit of skill or interest in art.  Now I am drawing and painting every day since joining PB about 2.5 years ago.  I see myself get better every day.

Do go to the Forum page and introduce yourself in the ABOUT ME section so we can all get to know you.

Best wishes for success.  Post your work as you go.  Check the HOW TO section on the Forum page.

Hi Meredith  :wave:   Just had a peek in your gallery, you are doing very well!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I've posted your drawings here so everyone can see them and you will get plenty of feedback and possible suggestions.



Cheers, Val

These drawings are really good.  You show lots of promise.

Will be fun to see where you progress from here.
