Drawing and Painting is all about practice. Learn from your mistakes, analyze and improve. People are not born with the natural gift of painting (most often being debated by those who are lazy to take a pencil and draw), although I wont argue that some people pick it up faster than others.
The old masters were all amateurs when they started and went through the stages of learning, making mistakes before they mastered it, so to everyone out there…. you have no excuse for not being able to draw and paint 🙂 My next series will be talking about the old Masters.
