No short cuts Alan. Since I discovered art, last year, my waking hours are only of sketching and painting and learning about it. I live it. Nothing else really matters to me anymore. It's consumed me. Even If I never improve, it's like an expression of an extra limb. I might be rubbish because I haven't been doing it long but I've gained much. I've been painting and sketching less than a year with no guidance until I joined the site. I am late to art and work myself to exhaustion. I want to catch up on what I feel I have missed. I only stop thinking about it when I sleep and then, I'm probably dreaming of what I'm going to paint next. I couldn't express in words, what art feels like to me but I'm sure you all must feel it.Don’t forget to enjoy the process. Martin
