Are you good at drawing or painting?

I've tried drawing freehand and painting on canvas to see if I was any good; since it's been a while. I had some art classes in high school but really didn't make much of it other than being required courses in school. I realized it's fun to see what I can successfully draw on paper, of course not taking any shortcuts by tracing. How about you?

  • I have always been very artistic. I love painting but my favorite is drawing with charcoal pencils. I'd like to think I'm really good but that depends on who is looking at my work.

  • I can't do any of that. I can't even do stick figures, they even look weird!

  • I just paint rooms. LOL But I did freehand flowers, butterflies and dragonflies on my daughter's bedroom, and did a space theme in my boys' bedroom (planets, comet, nebula, asteroid belt, and glow in the dark constellations). That's about all the painting I can do.

  • that boys room sound interesting and pretty. I love planets. I did some painting like the copied fronts of album covers, and just shading water colors, and tried to use tempura, and acrylic, just I would rather paint objects, like a birdhouse, or some lawn ornament, a structure, picnic table, etc, not good at mastering canvas, no.

  • I am an artist. I am a sculptor/potter so I use my hands...not a pencil.

    I am passable at drawing, but not great at it...
    Here is one of my drawings... ok, but not great...

  • I can a little but it has been so long since I picked up a brush or pen. I usually do all my work on the computer now.

  • Ha, I wish! I've never been good at anything like that.

  • No, I am terrible at it. I have a friend who has natural talent.
