I am good at many crafts and am quite creative however drawing/painting is not my forte!

I have tried a few times but really have no interest in doing this so, while I have possibly tried to paint a picture at some stage in my life apart from as a child, it is something that I cannot do, or do not want to do and cannot even imagine doing!

I would not know how or where to begin, though I truly admire people who can draw/paint! I think it is an art that is difficult.

Oh dear . . . . where to start. Nope, I'll just steal your answer again Finy. I think my neighbour's cat would paint better than I could.

No. I have not tried to paint, unless you call paint by numbers 'art'. My Dad is a whole other story. He took up painting when he retired, and he became very good at painting. He entered many shows and had his own exhibitions. The walls at mum and dad's place look like an art gallery !! Not a spare spot !! I don't have the skill or the desire to paint I'm afraid.

I have been an Artist for 35 years.
I worked for one of Australia's leading Artist paint companies in the 1980's.
I became very close friends with the family, and of course was give huge Jars of paint.
Got some canvas....and the rest is history.

Some can just pick up a brush, and it comes naturally.
Others have to learn how to paint.
Mine came from a few months of trial, and then I found what I liked to paint.

I really can not draw that well, but love watercolors, and also acrylics.
In my younger days I did huge canvas acrylics, and won a award from a famous art critique.
Then just went on to paint little watercolors, as I got older and sold many on ebay.
. . .and very beautiful they are!!! x x

I've never had time to give it a go. Just too many things to do when you're retired. At the moment it's a massive spring clean on my bedroom and the spare bedroom.
I haven't tried to paint a picture but did some sketching for a while many many years ago. I enjoyed that and later did pottery which I absolutely loved. Now I express myself through writing when I can find time.
I have tried but unfortunately I'm not very good

The closest I got to painting was when a friend & I went along to 2 painting classes, where the 'artist' shows you his painting, & you have to copy it!
I have been doing collages for Christmas cards & birthday cards for my mother & 2 friends of hers, for the last 65 years, but that's it! I also made 2 big collages of sunflowers & had them framed. I made those at a sketch class, but I was absolutely hopeless with the sketches!!! I do come from an artist background, but they seemed to have missed my genes!!! My father, his sister, his father, my mother, (before I was born) & her mother were all artists. My 3 siblings weren't artists either. I have 2 cousins. One is a silversmith, married to her Danish silversmith teacher, & the other is an architect, (who also paints sometimes,) married to an architect.

I remember thinking I have no desire to learn to paint. I have always been artistic/ creative , and yet producing a picture was not something I wanted to do..although ironically I worked as a photographer. I saw an interesting painting in a friend's home that stimulated my interest in trying that technique. I bought some paint and canvas and made a complete mess on the first try but kept at it. I have made many paintings since and had my first exhibition last year where I sold 35 out of 42 works. I love it. It fullfills something in me.
For anyone who wants to do it jump in and have a go. You can learn to do it. It is not a gift but a skill that can be developed.
That is very sweat of you! If you go to my profile and send me a message with your email, I can send you a pic or two....They are now just paintings, of the Blue Mountains here in Sydney-where I lived for 5 year...They are normally postcard size, and just of late I did a A4 size. :)
