    Hi everyone, I am so pleased to be back again. Really great to see a lot of the ole gang still here so you can probably gather that I have been here before ;):). I was Melbee then but I'm back as Melzy, new start, new name kinda thing.
    I'm a Brit living in the Netherlands and I used to paint portraits but I got disenchanted by the amount of time and stress they caused me. I put my brushes down for a while until I found other inspiration and over 5 years later I've finally got some new ideas. Hoorah! :thumbsup: It's gonna be abstract, simple illustration and whatever pops in my head so don't expect masterpieces :laugh:lol
    I use acrylic paints, ComArt and Etac mostly but I have some Golden, Schmincke and Trident too. I have an Iwata CM-SB V1 and an Eclipse SB, an Olympos MP-200C imported from Japan, two Sotar 20/20's and a bunch of Cheapo's plus a few I've forgotten about :whistling:
    Sadly I discovered my Werther 20A has a problem which I haven't been able to fix yet so I will be posting on the Compressor forum soon. Luckily I just bought one of those Mini Cordless Compressors which will probably serve well enough for what I want to do, we will have to see. I still have my first compressor the AS186 which although horrid will give me abit more pressure if I need it. If I can fix the 20A then I will be spoilt for choice :)
    So that's it. Very happy to be back in this great place once again and seeing so many familiar names gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling :D Ta Taa for now

    About time you found your way back. Paint what makes you happy not what you think you should be painting.

    Welcome back Melzy. I don’t think I was around when you were last here, so it’s good to meet you. Make sure to post up some pics of whatever you’re working on. It’s always cool to see new work going on.

    Thanks SiRoxx, I wouldn't hold your breath for seeing any of my art as I've only just started doing practise sheets lol:laugh: After 5yrs or more my skills need re-honing big time plus I've got to try and remember all the stuff I've forgotten. I'm enjoying tinkering about though :)
