Confession: I am still in my pyjamas (lunch time here)...but that doesn't mean I have been lazy this morning. I started painting at 9.30 this morning, which is rather early for a saturdaymorning if you ask me :) I try to do a semi-realistic painting once in a while to practice my drawing/painting skills.
Whether I like (not haha) the result is not the most important thing, it's more an excercise for my brain muscles. The famous psychologists Ericson said you need round about 10.000 hours of practising for your brain to master something. Well I wouldn't start counting if I were you, but I think the fact that there is scientific reason to believe that 'practice makes perfect' is an encouraging thought. So keep practising whatever it is you like and, most importantly, have fun with it!
