it just as enjoyable painting

Roger believes that we all have the ability to
draw and paint to a good standard with
training and the inclination
Some people are naturally
gifted and start at a
higher level than others. It's a shame
that many less
gifted go through life
saying and believing that they
could never draw
or paint anything, and so never try.
Drawing and painting should be fun to learn and a relaxing and enjoyable thing to do.
A note to beginners..........
You can produce good paintings quite early on, even
if you think that
you cannot draw very well, providing that you don't become too
ambitious with your chosen subject matter.
What other pastime can be done in almost any location, at any time,
periods to suit yourself, that doesn't involve
pictures are a lot bigger than his), and can be done alone
oh, and can be as affordable
as you want it to be.
Like anything we do in life, the more we do
of it , the better and
more comfortable we become with it.
With the help of good
techniques, tips and guidance, Roger wishes to enhance
the pleasure for all
