I am ready for a fresh start.
But I am very out of practise. It has been been 2 or so years since I've really sat down and drawn or painted anything. I have realised that drawing and painting is in some ways like a sport. It requires practise. The more you practise, obviously the better you will become. And practise creates familiarity. So, say you take up swimming as a sport. In the beginning it will be uncomfortable and difficult. Once you start it doing more often, it becomes easier and more comfortable; you will develop a understanding of what part of your body needs to do what, and when it needs to do it, and you will develop a rhythm.
If you practise often, soon the movement and flow will come naturally to you. But once you stop practising, you will lose that rhythm that has become second nature; you will lose the familiarity. And if you leave it for a long time, when you start again, you will have to practically start from scratch.
Painting and drawing is exactly like that. P
