I was wondering if you ever felt like, after not doing somthing for a long time,
that you are going backwards?
Recently I have tried to draw a chair, for many times..and it won't work..
Like I can only draw from pictures and..quickies..when I try to draw
a big chair by the negative space..it's a mess.
But a few monthes ago it was easy for me..
scary or I am just getting my-self too deep psychologicly?

It may take some time to get back where you were, but not as much as it took to get there in the first place.

Its weird, sometimes if I do something hardcore for a while, then take some time off, when I come back to it, I'm better than when I stopped. This has definitely happened with music stuff. Like I'll just be unable to play something on the guitar and after practicing a bunch I only seem to only get marginally better at it. Then a week later I'll pick up the guitar and I'll be able to play whatever it was much more naturally. I suppose it's just mental digestion/restructuring time.
I find with drawing and painting, if I don't do it for a while I loose the confidence I had built up previously and that seems to account for the initial stumbles when getting back into it.
