Became enraptured with Bob Ross TV series rerun during covid lockdown, so thought -- "If anything would ever induce me to take up oil painting, this will." Guess what, got a BR starter kit & brushes, a full set of 200ml paint tubes, and started painting following Bob's video and written instructions through the 2"B copies of his series, a couple of lessons with a CRI and the wonderful information available on this site. I'm still happily experimenting, learning, painting, being part of and contributing to the community.

At the start of 2022, I was also inspired to also take up sketching to add to my skills and planning processes; and also to try more traditional painting techniques.

I am thoroughly enjoying the learning assistance provided by the 2"B material and the camaraderie and mentoring by members of this site. Thank you everyone for this and greatly enriching and making my painting experience so much more enjoyable.
