your tinten composition would put the lie to that -- but your story goes far to say how skill overcomes talent. How hard work overcomes "its's easy". Talented people are lazy - it comes easy. The rewards are in the struggle. With PS, at least there is nothing that can't be undone/redone - the canvas is not ruined.minniev wrote: ↑Tue Dec 11, 2018 1:38 pm“Northern Skullcap”PietFrancke wrote: ↑Tue Dec 11, 2018 2:17 am
the bird is the Northern SkullCap - when they get stuck they scream even louder than the Australian OhNo bird!
About dexterity, Me neither - but I'm getting closer and getting better at refining and seeing things wrong... But with layers and photoshop etc, dexterity is no longer a requirement!
I do think there is a part of dexterity that PS won’t cure. I can see the things that are wrong but have trouble fixing them. I have the same trouble making composites. I paint myself into a corner almost every time. The corner is almost always in the same place, the inner edge of the middle right third. It is probably the same reason I cannot do other tasks that call for fine motor dexterity and nuances of perception. I am trying to learn some compensations for it, but it’s been a lifelong thing. I am un-graceful in many ways. I admire what you’re learning, and it gives me encouragement to keep up the effort.
"I can see the things that are wrong but have trouble fixing them" - what a beautiful statement! Imagine trying to fix something if you can't even see what is wrong. It is all about seeing, and then being determined to fix - working hard to fix. Yes - we always have trouble fixing them.
