I like seeing how people 'grow', especially in creative directions. It was a real joy to look through this artist's progression over the year of her drawings, and see how her confidence has increased, how less becomes more, how assured the quality of her linework, and also her ideas become.
It also reminds me that to become good at anything requires practice. Practice, perseverance, and picking oneself up and carrying on even when stuff isn't going the way one wants. It is about taking aboard the lessons one learns from making mistakes to create things that work. Sometimes of course perfection occurs naturally, however more often it comes about from the experience of going the 'wrong' way! And sometimes, the wrong way has its own benefits. :) Nothing in my experience, goes to waste. We are all constant learners, no matter how old, how professional, how 'mastered' we become in any endeavor. And that is the joy of living.
I am a work in progress! :D
