It is appears to be close to where I live.
I want to relearn oil painting...preferablely portraits. I draw/paint in graphite, charcoal, pastel and am learning (teaching myself) color pencil.
I've always drawn....just never pursued art as a "career". 40 yrs ago I wanted to become a fashion illustrator, got a BFA in illustration and found work as a secretary. Now I'm retired and want to draw more (I never stopped....just drew more and more from photos than live models and that I want to change). Also want to become more comfortable drawing/painting in front of others (en plein air).
I am always looking to meet other area artists to learn from, or colaborate with, socialize with and/or become friends with. I like to draw & paint & need and want to do more of it now that I can make the time!
I like the activity of the group!!!! Much to choose from!
