Hello everyone, I am excited to join all of you. I have enjoyed browsing through your posts. Lots of fine artist here. I did oil paintings when I got out of University. I wanted to learn realism and fine drawing and painting. Unfortunately no one would teach it. So I had to learn on my own. I love drawing and I have painted in oils and watercolor. I am just returning to oils after thirty years. I would really like to learn methods I was never taught. Starting the Carder method soon. I really appreciate his straight forward way of explaining everything. Some teachers get lost in theory and gobbly goop.
