Inspiration and ideas come easy there, recalling it and accurately depicting it does not! ha. Thanks man. Enjoy the journey, tell others.

It's difficult to admit to yourself that an art piece probably isn't going to come out the way you want it to and that you need to remind yourself that it's something learned over time and effort. I got one on the go right now that I had high hopes for but I'm feeling a bit discouraged but I won't give up. Just take a break and come back and put in the effort. All the stuff they teach you in art class that you don't really care about or remember applies. I can't say enough about perspective - You can do the same art piece in the same quality but from a different angle and suddenly it has more meaning and seems more effective and memorable.  Thankfully paint is forgiving in the sense you can always paint over and change something.  It's difficult finding the time to really complete a detailed art piece if that's what yer going for. These days I put more emphasis on planning. I always seem to kinda let an art piece develop on the go but it's also a lot more time consuming.

It's actually even more gratifying I find to give it more planning and effort and all around a full mental emotional excercise. You give it the whole of what you got.

I don't know if you play music but I realized after doing art for some years and coming back to music and applying the same art principles my music really took off in structure.

So yeah man, just keep at it and give it all who you are and keep at it and you'll get results you're more and more happy with for sure. I'm still learning so much. I never took a real painting class and feel I coulda really benefited from that!
