It feels like I don’t know how to watercolor anymore. The more I try to do it the worse it gets. After the horses pic last was critiqued. I thought to do something better. This is what I came up with. First, I was like maybe I should watercolor still life to display at the fair, bur I did awful. I was told to just show the horses watercolor. It’s like I learn all the rules to art, then I forget it. It’s so frustrating. I think it has something to do with my disability. I found another drawing site called I think Life Drawing Academy. It’s suppose to give you the classical education to art and it only needs a 300 dollars for access. I found it through a youtube video that give you examples of drawings to rate yourself and I’m a zero. Don’t get me wrong like some of the work was good on level zero, so this wasn’t stick figures or anything. They still had something off. I better save money. They also have a watercolor web-site too, which may help me with watercolors, but it’s another 300 dollars.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself Shannon. You are much better than you give yourself credit for. I often look at your work and it’s incredible how much you’ve improved since you first started posting, For what it’s worth I think while other sites may offer you something different it will never match up to what Matt has to offer. Anyways take care Jan

      Thank-you for your kind words. It’s just I see this wonderful art everywhere and I see and want to do it too. I noticed that I have moved on to color. Watercolors is very hard. I can always have both sites. While I DTO, I also have skillshare. This site only needs 300 dollars and then I’m set. Like I posted, I need to save money like put away like 50 or 100 dollars per month.

    Hello Shannon,

    I know the other web site which you talk and it seems of quality with the same way that Matt. Anyway, a lot of approach in the lesson online are very well and are going to correspond more or less. I think that it’s not really the question.
    But, the fact to fail is a big part of learning… It’s normal to fail and doubt also. Don’t worry. Little to little, you learn mechanism and you progress ( even if you don’t realize currently). Be patient 🙂
    We often say that in order to master a skill, you must practice 10 000 hours

    PS : I hope I am not too difficult to understand. Sorry for the language
