How do you draw so well?
It must be an innate gift... A gift from God...
I'll never understand how some people are so talented... A mystery...

Ah, the good ol’ generational gap. In my opinion, besides practice, I’m sure overall intelligence and creativity plays a factor as well.
It’s not only practice, though. Nobody would deny that several people can practice the same amount but not improve the same amount.
In other words, that girl doesn’t want to do the work.
why the need to attribute talent & skill to god?
You can do anything you want to, assuming you aren’t already lacking in natural aptitude and skill.
Well, since childhood, I noticed those who draw well generally could from a young age. My drawings and sketches never turn out as good as the image in my head. Practice would make them better, but how much to get good enough? It’s like perfect pitch for music – some just have it, although it can be developed with practice.
Practice makes progress.
Most children draw, also most children stop. But some of us like *Sara Anderson an myself keep doing it all of our lives.
Even Luciano Pavarotti — who once famously attributed his astounding vocal success largely to sheer determination and effort — probably wouldn’t have claimed practice is a substitute for god-given talent.
It’s thinking like Sarah has depicted here that leads so many wealthy people to wrongly assume they deserve their wealth because they believe they’ve worked to earn it. When in truth, it’s mostly just dumb luck-of-the-draw, often combined with an inheritance.
Talent manifests itself in all manner of forms, and all beyond our control. Practice is simply the just tariff good conscience and duty demand of our gifts.
