I wanted to open a place for beginning artist. I am a beginner myself and I hesitate to post my efforts on the sites with accomplished artist. On this site lets have fun and show our efforts with out stress just fun. I play with acrylics and water color . I have not tried oils yet. Recently I have been trying to do a pencil portrait of my HD. I may not be good but it is fun and I am learning. They say art can be learned. I have made it my goal to see if this is true. Join me here for a fun learning time. How do you choose what to paint? What is your learning source and even is learning art possible or do you have to have natural talents. Here is one of my efforts. My try at a copy of a Walter Anderson card. shirleyt

a waterfall where my hubby spent his childhood summers. As you can see I pic simple things to try. When they look half way decent I am happy. If the kids like them I am elated and inspired to keep trying. New things at my age keep me moving. shirleyt

The first thing I ever painted was a plywood cut out stand up of Santa for Christmas decor. Two of my friends and I spent a very happy day cutting out and painting it. I still have mine. I displayed it this year. Such fun. I am still learning techniques. I have just been winging it. Now I want to really study and see if I can really learn. Any tips from anyone is welcome here. shirley

Oh I am so glad I found this cubit! I was thinking of starting something like this myself :)

I used to draw a lot in junior high and high school. Then life came along, and I stopped drawing for many years. I was recently inspired to take up the pencil again.

Here is my first sketch in almost 20 years:

I also like to do some computer art (maybe we need a separate cubit for that). This was done only with the Paint program that comes with Windows (c) - no fancy stuff like PhotoShop!

Yes, I got to change that picture. I want a girlie pic oof me with Charley. Thank you Jeannie, you drawing is very pretty.
The mule pic with Red shirt. That was a picture That I liked so much; I felt I had to paint one. The one with the man in overall, I got it out of newspaper.
I can draw a little, but have to figure out how to get it down in a way I can paint.
Thank you again, love the Daylily.

Nice stuff, all of you! I love the mule over the shoulder. I'd crop it at the top of the light blue background and frame it. That's a keeper.

THe composition is just great, as is the expression on the mule.

SHirley do you mostly work in watercolor or acrylic?

hi Jeannie welcome, I have been hopping from one medium to another trying to find something I can do. I have had more success with the acrylics. This week I have been trying to do a pencil portrait of my husband who passed in Oct. It is therapy for me. I cannot draw very well and I do not know the techniques for water color. It is truly a search the internet for info process for me. I am having fun and just wanted to see what others are doing. You draw really well. I want to try to watercolor one of my amaryllis pictures. I worked really hard on this drawing and it is definitely not right. But much better than I thought I could ever do. I will keep trying. shirleyt

Taggets that long horn is awesome. I wish I could show that to my hubby. He would love that. His friend used to raise them. This is a pic of hubby that I was trying to draw.

I agree we do need the computer art thread. That will be something else for us to play with. I have never even thought about doing that. shirleyt
