I love to paint! I hope you don't mean painting walls inside a home I actually like that too but I'm at artist so I love to do art.
I went to the American Academy of Art in Chicago and there were some amazing teachers there that had good tips to pass on to the students. Each teacher excelled at a different medium and even though I admired some of their techniques I found I couldn't get into watercolors at all. I love working with oils but I use the water soluble ones. Have you tried those?
