I like painting. I wondered if this is a place to post questions etc?

Yes I think it is. There are others on here painting and drawing.

Please do. Lots of people enjoy painting including me.

And a lot of people don't make the distinction between art and craft so many people doing 'craft' here are also doing art. wink

That is true. All kinds of art including mixed media, collage,quilting etc are discussed here. However, as said before, painting is a very popular hobby as well as a profession.

I paint and draw. Just began a course in oil painting in September and am faffing around a bit. Anyone else artsy (rather than crafty)?

I've just decided to try painting. I got a book on acrylic painting for Christmas & have just purchased a couple of tubes of paint, some paper & some end-of-line brushes from the local art shop. I always knew I could draw but assumed (based on school art class failures) that I couldn't paint worth a damn. Apparently that's not entirely true... rather a nice surprise!

For balance, I'm also crafty - I knit quite a lot (I like lace & cable, that's the type that looks like plaits or celtic knotwork), I do embroidery & tapestry (I like the fancy stuff), & I'm trying to get my head round patchwork. I do the odd bit of cross-stitch but I find proper embroidery with all the fancy stitches much more interesting.
