Recently retired and with time to spare, I'm going to give drawing a try. I live in France in an area with beautiful buildings, streets and scenes so it definitely looks like I will be trying the landscape option first.

I have gone for the pencil drawing course but for some reason I don't have the pallet icon or the large blue tv button visible on my page. Am I on the wrong site or just too quick after registering?

Looking forward to your comments in time.

:bigwelcome: to the PB family Ken, great to have you here :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Things look a tad different now - so you access your course from the green My Classes menu at the top of the page. Please try that and let me know if you still don't have access O0
