Any Painters?

I love to paint! I can't seem to create my own designs (I think I'm just to hard on myself) but I've made several canvases of my daughters favorite cartoon characters. I find painting very relaxing. Stupid copyright laws I could sell them. Lol!! Origami

Oh my gosh! @monarae the Paintmyphoto site (https://pmp-art.com/) is brilliant! thank you ... and great question, @trumocha2! I love to paint - I find it incredibly therapeutic, and love working with acrylics and gouache paints, but I have no original bone-in-my-body *grin* so often resort to trying to copy from my own photos, which is a limited choice *haha*

I've been a painter for a while, but it tapered off when my son became ill 3 yrs. ago. I just started getting back into it a little last year and now am really working to get back into it. My husband just gave me my dream easel for our 25th anniversary a couple of weeks ago.

I do a mix of drawing things onto the canvas and then painting and just painting onto the canvas. Many things such as pine trees can be accomplished with a simple brush stroke using the correct brush.

I'm learning. I always thought I didnt have the talent. Then I heard drawing can be a learned skill. There certainly are extremely talented people who can draw better than I can ever be taught . However, it's nice to know i can learn at an amateur level. I found I really enjoy mixed media
