Hi everybody. Being semi-retired I took up drawing about 3 years ago and I am completely hooked. I have previously signed up for some other art web sites including the very good ArtTutor.com. While this site is excellent if you are keen on painting it does not have a great deal of content for drawing and the site has been very slow of late. Although I have tried painting it really is drawing that holds my passion so I will stick to what I love and I recently came across this site. I particularly like the style of the older illustrators such as Andrew Loomis and Jack Hamm. I really enjoy learning from other skilled artists and I am hoping I will learn a lot from this site in the comming year.
