Beginning to paint art

I’ve just found a great resource for beginning to paint at thoughtco.com.  Have a look at this article by Marion Boddy-Evans.  If you’ve got a question, you’re very very likely to find the answer here.  (be aware that the host site also covers different hobbies such as dangerous sports and gambling!)
