This is what you call an educated attempt. Something you do after deliberately making a mistake to prove that exception only proves the rule!
After the two previous ones, there were a couple of things that got reinforced:
- Practice & experiment is still the best way to conquer the fear of making mistakes. If it taught you something, its called lesson.
- Surround yourself with the positive people, they enrich you.
- Shoot for the brightest colors; nothing cheers up a piece of art like intense, pure colors
- Trust. If there is hesitation, verify! In this order.
I have got some books. Will read. Till then!
