In the spirit of MindCandyMan's inspirational postings, I too have decided to try to learn how to paint (and draw, but I'm much better with a pencil than I am with a computer) and submit my practice work to this site in the hopes of finding advice and the right kind of tutorials. I will, of course, because I am a semi-intelligent being, keep hunting for other tutorials and try to incorporate them into my work and also read other beginner's journals/sketchbooks and follow as much advice as I can find on the forum outside this thread =)
I hope this documents my progress well and hopefully I will learn a lot.
Thanks for reading!
This is my first post, just a painting of an apple I did in photoshop with photographic reference =)
