Whenever we place any pressure on ourselves, we tend to tighten up, overthink things and overpaint. Much like an athlete chokes when a score or point is critical. Our minds get in the way of our hearts.
I want to keep creating art for as many years as I can, and I'm sure any artist out there feels the same way. That's why I would ask you, no matter what stage of life you're in, no matter what your current chosen medium, to seriously consider learning digital art. It has the potential to extend your years of creating art.
