Hi. Like probably a lot of you, I never really drew or painted a damn thing ever as I "knew" I was rubbish. Recently though, as part of some treatment I needed I had a bit of time to work on art-related activities, and for lack of any other ideas I started just scribbling some pencil drawings. They were bad, but I enjoyed the process and the activity itself quite a lot, so I decided to give it an honest try. A bit of searching later, and I found PB's youtube channel, and then the website.

Today I bought the pencil drawing course, so I'm looking forward to learning

Welcome to Paintbasket.  So happy that you are joining us.  Starting with the drawing course is the best place to begin.

Our instructors, Nolan and Dennis, are excellent and the PB members will soon become like family to you.

Look forward to seeing your work.
