If you have ever wanted to paint than now is a good a time to start. Paint for your own pleasure. Do not paint to compete, just do it for the pure enjoyment of seeing the paint come off the brush.
You do not need to be able to draw a straight line, in fact there are few straight lines in nature.
Painting can give you endless hours of satisfaction.
Remember time spent painting is not deducted from the alloted time.
Go to Gallery and see the paintings you can copy, some are very simple.
