When I first started painting, I couldn’t figure out clouds. I would look at tutorials, pull up some Bob Ross episodes, and try my best, but I just couldn’t get it. I have, through practice, learned how to have a light touch and do many layers to get them just right.

Learning something new never feels easy (and never is), but once you have an idea of how to do something, you never want to stop. And I haven’t. I’ve even started trying it out in different styles, to varying degrees of success.
