I guess I have a bit of egg on my face, and likely a side of bacon as well. Being new to the forum I had no idea your painting skills were on a level of masterful. If you feel your artwork isn't good enough, you shouldn't. Your work is no less than amazing.

Have you ever felt that other people sketch better than you do, that you are not that skilled enough, that you make very little progress on drawing and sketching, that you haven't find your personal artistic style yet, etc etc etc.. ???

Because these are some of the thoughts I do sometimes, and I feel disappointed and get angry with myself for not trying enough.. Have you ever feel this way and how do you deal with the feel of being inadequate? ( if you ever felt this way of course).

I feel that way all the time, and have felt that way for the past thirty years. One has to just keep on putting on a brave and confident face - very exhausting. :-)
