I just joined the forum today. I have been watching Mark's videos on YouTube for a while, and I am impressed by the fact that he is committed to helping people become better artists. I have also viewed a couple of the discussion topics, and I can tell there are other members who are willing to share their advice and experiences. That is great!!!! I have taken a couple of art classes over the years, but the questions I have during the class always exceed the time that the instructors have. I look forward to being a member!!
