adding the speed to paintings?
Not sure where to ask...
When I try for anythign even vaguely realistic, I'm slow. Days slow.
And the results...I'd rather not talk about .
How does one go working on speed and accuracy at the same time? I'm not strong on either, but when I try for one, the other seems to suffer.

Work on accuracy and speed will come. And even if it doesn't, you'll at least be accurate.

Speed is something that generally comes with time, first you need to be able to render accurately, as you get more confident with your subjects and more knowledgeable about them and the materials you use, you'll be able to work faster and more accurately. That said some artists do tend to take longer even after several years, we all work at our own pace. Speed can be good but accuracy tends to be more important.
Anyone can draw a stick figure in a few minutes but not everyone can paint something like the Mona lisa.
