Yes. I've always enjoyed drawing and painting.
What kind of painting are you looking to get into? Watercolors and india ink are my favourite combo!
I can't paint. I write as a hobby, but wish I'd taken up painting. At least with painting, when you finish something you can hang it on the wall.

It depends what you want to paint. I favor acrylics for everyday stuff. I've never worked with watercolors. Oils are super expensive and a pain to dry.
If you think you suck, keep going. Your eyes are better than your hands. You can train your hands.
Get one of those selections of paint from the art store and some canvasses and dig in. Don't worry about making a mess or wasting supplies. Make note of what works for you, and if you run low of one of the colors get more of it.
Also, take a class! You might reach the point, which is where I am now, where your vision outstrips your ability, and you might stall.
