So, as it says, I've never once ever painted barely anything. Except some experimental watercolors, I'm 66 or 7 years old and have decided I'm going to try, and try, and try. Mark says I can do it, and I'm not ready yet, but I will be. I made my color checker, I made my brush holder, and proportional thingy and a brush cleaner and glass pallets. I have paint, canvas, and ordered walnut oil and other things I will want, including some cheap brushes to start, and light bulbs. I'm trying like mad to clean out the spare room where I can set things up as I like. Easel... I'm working on...guess this may slide into fall or winter but I'll be reading discussions here and trying not to get intimidated. So anyway, I'm excited! You've no idea how important this is to me, always a dream of mine to paint. Should have started 40 years ago.
