Yes, I also have a passion for Art.I have been painting for the past 15yrs or more.
Anyone can paint,did you ever hear that and think "no way" well it's true.
What do you think of this painting done by a lady in my Beginners class ? Did'nt she do well. Her daughter has it hanging in her house, proudly!
Why not try,get some paints, Acrylics are great as they dry quickly, good for beginners.
Oil's take a lot longer to dry but the colours are more vibrant.
You can start painting on almost anything, a piece of board, paper, canvas. You can buy some Acrylic paper from art shops which is good to start with. Some brushes and away you go, let your imagination go wild, after all no one is looking.
Let me know what you think or if you would like some more advice on painting.
