After working for over 40 years in careers that include manufacturing, purchasing, and technical writing, I recently retired and decided I wanted to paint portraits. But portrait painting is proving to be a challenge as I lack any formal art training or schooling and did not have the benefit of a nearby artist community for training or support.
