    Agreed! Although I don’t paint, i have been watching Bob Ross painting videos. Feels therapeutic as well.

    So good to hear @Stacken77.

    Honestly, I know you're feeling the struggle at the moment, but you're doing so well despite everything.

    Yet another positive addition to your life in the face of adversity.

    I actually used to do art classes all the time prior to onset. (Life Drawing etc.) Dropped it all when things got bad, and have never had the discipline to resume it since.

    Kept resolving to reuptake it, then lockdowns came along and I just watched boxsets instead... :/

    Thanks @Damocles! I've been wanting to learn painting for years, but have never had the time, or courage, to begin. I thought this would be a good time learn that. Just finished up a nature painting which I've worked on for a week, and while it's - not good - it's not too shitty either, so I'll continue. ;)

    @Stacken77 amazing! I draw sometimes and I find it very therapeutic.. though I’m not great at it. My partner is a tattooist, and he started painting during lockdown last year, and of course, he had to be brilliant at it -_-

    Good on you, it's always good to learn something new and challenge yourself a little :) I love to write and draw / paint myself and doing so sometimes even draws me in so much that everything else just goes away for a while. I hope the same might hold true for you!
