People think art is easy

People think art is easy, they think if they see you in action that it doesn’t take much effort, ignorant of the fact that you had to draw for hours, days, years to get to the point where it looks easy, much like a professional athlete or dancer.¬† And sometimes art or craft can look simple, but it’s a combination of scale, colour and design that makes it work. Sure you might be able to copy something, it’s coming up with the concept in the first place, and abstraction is the most difficult of art styles, saying the most with less, haiku instead of prose.
