My name is Ethan, and I'm very excited to join the forum! I've been lurking the forum for a few days and this seems like the most skilled, friendly and helpful group of painters on the web
A little bit about me. I'm 21 years old. I've always enjoyed drawing. About four years ago though I fell in love with painting after I visited my uncle in Florida who paints for a living and he helped me do my first ever oil painting. I went home then and proceeded to buy all the supplies I needed and....not practice.
So a few years has passed since then where I haven't completed very many paintings, and certainly haven't practiced consistently. In that time I got married, and just a couple weeks ago we moved in to a town home in Boyertown, Pennsylvania. I now have a whole room as a dedicated studio and I'm ready to truly learn! I'm fortunate in that I just discovered Mark Carder and his methods and videos and this forum right at the same time. So here's some paintings I've completed over the past years and I look forward to posting many more as I learn the Mark Carder method and learn from all of you!
