Thank you very much for your praise, makes me feel good! Sometimes, faces are hard to paint for me, too: expecially with men's faces. Women and children are easier for me.

Me neither. Once I had for a customer's portrait, and it was a VERY hard job. So I think, it's to 90 percent just a lack of practise, when we don't master a motive/subject.

Yes, exactly, and this is what I experienced, too. For instance, I always thought I am not able to paint landscapes. Until I tried. Nowadays, it is so much fun to me, and I like my landscape pictures. The more you practise, the better you get. Just try.
Oh, some science theories support that opinion. (e.g. read "outliars - The Story of Success" from Malcolm Gladwell, if you google for it, you will get an idea about his thesis)

I have to idmitte I don't read books. But maybe I could try painting more and less time on the tv or laptop. How often do you paint? :painter: like 14/7???

I try to paint daily, and I am unsatisfied with every day that I can't findthe time for painting.
There is something missing then. Like a daily sports training, just with pencils, brushes and colours. :-D
