Hi, introducing myself as I joined here today. I am hoping to find some great painting friends on here as I start to head towards my artistic career in a more focused way.
I have been painting for about 20 years and did a painting degree about 9 years ago but its only now that I am in a position to focus in and become a more serious artist.
I am currently starting a body of work, my first 'proper' one since my uni days. I am hoping to create a series of self portraits as a starter. I really want to become more confident to paint from a live model but find it hard to ask people so thought I'd start with myself.
That's enough of me for now, everything else is in my bio.
Hi ya Amanda!
Good to meet you. I'm Cherie. I haven't been on this site very long, but have enjoyed it immensely. People don't seem to hang out too much on the forums (or most of them anyway.) Looks like the "All media photo Challenge" one might be a bit more active. I wish there was some way to revive the forums, but *sigh* until people start posting more I guess there isn't. I have noticed that one way to connect with the others on this site is in the galleries. You can see what everyone is doing, and comment on their work, and add your own. I hope you do join in. Look forward to seeing more of you!
Thank you for your welcome! I will take a look around. Hopefully the forum will become more active, its a shame that its not better used.
