Thanks everyone for the nice comments.
I did a few quick and amateurish studies using watercolour and gouache this week. I'm trying to transition into more complex subjects, something I had been avoiding for a while. Each one took about 30min or so and looks like it. I'm trying to get into the mentality of just drawing/painting a lot without the expectation that I will produce anything good. I think this will help me improve in the long run and the reduce the anxiety created by unrealistic standards.
