 :bigwelcome: Qwertyy2016! You are in the right place for sketching/drawing.  O0   The Let's Draw course would be the best place to start. It will be a great refresher for what you already know, and open the way to so many new techniques. You'll be up and drawing again in no time!  :heeha:
If you have any queries just sing out and someone will be about to lend a hand. We are a friendly bunch, quite informal and love to have fun.
Look forward to seeing your scribbles and seeing you about the forum, OH and do check out the challenges! They are great fun, will push you out of your comfort zone, and there are prezzies to be won!!!  :yippee:

 :welcome: PB is a great place to be. Great Tutors and great friendly members to assist along the way  ;)
Agreeing with Val, Lets draw is an excellent place to start, but then there are so many other classes too. Enjoy and post your work .

Welcome to Paintbasket, Qwerty.  You have already taught me something.  I had to Google to find out what Hennah was.  Very beautiful designs.

I agree the Let's Draw course is the best place to start.  I had absolutely no ability in drawing and now cannot wait to pick up my pencil every day!

Look forward to seeing your work.
