I read artistically you naturally get better - as few as 40 attempts at anything...
try it! Draw your cat, cup, pup or the same potted plant everyday and watch what happens.
Apparently, you can break or form new habits in 40 days. IF you sick with it.
40 times lost in thought ...not lost - exactly where I want to BE.
Painting Jesus will be 40 times meditating on love.
This painting was about the feeling more than the portrait'.
I felt peaceful after painting... excited to start the 2nd.
