Learn to paint with online painting lessons

As long as I can remember I have been interested in painting. I have a so called "museumjaarkaart", that is a pas that gives me free access to a lot of museums here in Holland, and I use it a lot. Almost every week I visit at least one museum.

I am mainly interested in realistic paintings, especially the old masters like Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Ruysdael etc. Usually I have no interest in abstract paintings, although sometimes I like one or two.

I do not paint myself, I would like to, but I do not think I have any talent. Long time ago I did try, and what I produced was pretty childish. What my children produced at school when they were about 10 years old, looked better.

Maybe I should take up painting lessons , and try again, because being able to paint really good is one of my secret wishes. I am pretty sure I will not become a famous painter, but just to be able to paint something halfway decent would be great.
