Hey guys,

Hope everyone is well.

Since my "Retirement." My wife decided I needed a new hobby, and she bought me some paint and brushes. I've never tried art before so thought, hey ho, might as well give it a go.

I used to love watching Bob Ross on the TV years ago and always looked in wonder at what he could do in 1/2 an hour.

I've found it surprisingly good fun! Even taken a beginners class in drawing.

It's very relaxing, quite a cheap hobby to have as well.

Here are a few of my little efforts!

Dave

Very impressive for a first timer! It might be something for me to consider when I retire!

Thank you!

You haven't seen the ones I threw in the trash....

But, it's just a piece of paper and some paint. I learn something every time I fail doing a picture.

Plus, when my wife is watching golf on the telly, I can look at YouTube tutorial's... We lead a life right on the edge, she and I.

Hey Zak,

Thank you!

It's only a small painting onto a framed canvas. 16" x 6"

If you'd like it, it's yours.

Just PM me your address, and I'll send it too you.

Dave

Nice going Dave! I actually paint and draw a bit myself....but work means I rarely get to do much. If and when I get to retire I'd love to get back into in properly.

I hope you stick with it, man - if those are your first efforts, then you've definitely got ability!

Thank you! I am really enjoying it. The classes were fun as you get 10 different drawings representing what people are seeing in front of them.

I will be sticking by it for sure, it's become quite addictive!

Many thanks, I'll keep an eye open for it! I'll treasure it whilst you build up for your Turner prize.
