Hi,
Why don’t you start with http://underscores.me/ . It is a good starter blank theme (generator).

In the ThemeForest, Wordpress themes section if you search for Undersocres then you will see many beautiful themes developed with this blank starter themes.

underscore is for heavy developers
I am a designer with a very good CSS knowledge and basic PHP…

If you have a very good css knowledge then underscores is definitely easy for you mate, because the development part of it is mostly ready and I found that its the css that makes it stand out.

I have tried all kind of starter themes and frameworks and I think underscores is easier than all the others.

OK
I installed _underscore and I am trying to work with it.
I found a more human Style.css for _underscore so it looks normal…

Do you know more places to download styles to _underscore?

No, don’t know any place. I think the whole point of Underscores is to create your own style as it is a starter theme
