Hello from sunny Arizona. I just retired from my job as a business analyst because my company sold. My job basically allowed the purchase of art supplies and now that I've retired...I've elected to buy some more. Since December I've been working in pastels, which I love, but I think I'd like to switch to oils and, in the thought process, I found Draw, Mix, Paint and love the entire thing...from all the videos, tutorials, question and answers and this forum. I just ordered my first paints from Geneva and am looking forward to trying Mark's method. Wish me luck! I'm attaching a couple of my pastels so you know where I am in the process. I'm excited to meet you all and thrilled to be trying a new medium.
