Hi Andrew!   :welcome: to Paintbasket. 

I know you will love it here.  Nolan teaches oil and acrylics.  I have been taking advantage of his Let's Draw course and I've learned more than I could ever have imagined in all these three mediums.

I can't get enough of what's offered here.  I also watch all of Dennis' watercolor classes and my watercolor skills are steadily improving.

Both are very good teachers, in my mind, the best.

The forum is a friendly place.  We learn by posting our artwork here and we get friendly feedback and help.

I'm looking forward to seeing your paintings.

Welcome Andrew!  I enjoyed looking at your paintings on your website.  I'm pretty new here, but have loved seeing how friendly and helpful everyone is.  I know I'm going to learn a lot here, and I'm sure you will as well!

 :welcome:, Andrew!  Looking forward to becoming acquainted with you and your art.  As everyone has said, this is a great place.  I have learned so much already, and I've only been here a short time.  I'm sure you will love it!
