    Hey judylin,
    The more the merrier i guess?
    In case you are wondering where to get art and painting supplies, I found a good shop selling a wide range of those stuff at Jl Ampera Raya directly opposite "Arsip Keadilan" building. Shop name is Aneka Warna. Quality is also great and much cheaper than at Gramedia bookshops at the malls. Not sure the exact address but i'll post again when i have it.
    Hi, Chomel! Sorry for my late respond. Thank you for giving the greetings and recommendation. The shop is worth to visit. I can't wait for the meet up.

    Judylin,

    It does not take much to start drawing. Even a pen and paper would do. I can show you some of my sketches in pen to help inspire you up. Depending on the medium, painting can also be quick and easy to start without too much investment in equipment. Water color for example is cheap. Even acrylic painting is not that expensive, but you would need to invest in an easel, a palette, some brushes and of course some paints.

    You will be notified when the group is to meet but you are now on the list. BTW, whereabout are you? In Jakarta? If so, north east south or west? Knowing residence of all the member of the group would help selecting a convenient meeting venue.
    I'll be delighted to see your sketches. I also love drawing sketches. I used to do oil painting during high school (just for fun, I didn't particularly study the techniques). In University, I didn't touch canvass, I used water color, pencil, pastel, and did mural. Recently, I started working, I haven't had the chance to do my old hobby. That's why I'm glad finding your post. I've already PM you. The best time for me to gather with the members is weekend. I'll be happy receiving any news from you.

    True that it doesn't take much to start. Even an easel is optional imo... I've always liked acrylics. Its water based and dries quickly. Great for "quickie" paintings. I've only just started to dabble in oils... So far I liked it very much. Easier to blend (on canvas), and the finished product is nicer than acrylics. Except that it takes longer to dry. The smell of turpentine is kinda too strong for me though. Wonder if there are other options besides using turpentine for cleaning the brushes?
    I guess you like impressionism drawing style? I'm looking forward to seeing your paintings.
    So, you're going to Singapore soon. Have a nice trip then.

            Nobita,

            No, you are not too late. The August plan did not happen. We are now planning to meet in September. I am in the process of contacting all interested parties, voting on possible dates and venues. See this thread:

                          Are you guys still interested in joining art/painting class? Me and one other member here is thinking of forming a art/painting group. The idea is not to form art classes as such but just a gathering of painting enthusiasts to paint together, share techniques and tips together and perhaps chat over a cup of tea or two.
