Sorry for the long time to get back to you! Yes, I love to draw---although, I admit, I haven't done it in a while because of the general busyness of life. I'd like to learn how to paint. I've seen/heard pastels are a good way to learn how to paint realism very well---I've seen some amazingly lifelike wildlife paintings in pastel which I dream of being able to recreate one of these days. Do you paint?
