Hello everyone, I’m a newbie to drawing. Have never had a lesson in my life so at 70 plus and with Covid 19 lock down, I decided that I would give drawing a go.  Finding it a real challenge, but pretty determined to keep at it.

 :bigwelcome: Welcome to the fun house Di!!!  Good on you for jumping in!  :congrats:
You will find plenty of help and encouragement from everyone here. Look forward to seeing your posts, should you find yourself scratching your head with the pencil rather than on paper, just sing out and someone will be about to lend a hand. Have fun, and drop by often!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val
