After a few decades break after school, I have picked up a brush again, and am fully committed to following the method. I look forward to producing paintings that are much closer to what I want, and not getting all bogged down in details and fiddly work, never finishing a painting. I think that's going to be a struggle, but a very relaxing and enjoyable one. I'm an engineer, and quite possibly have the most difficult learning curve ahead of me, but I'm game. Let's see how it goes.
I look forward to posting progress, and getting valuable critique. I'm going to need it.
