I want to tell you the story of my daughter.
She was 12 when I brought her to art school. When she brought sketches from her first plener, I was shocked - it was scrawl. I was looking for the way to say her that canít all be artists and she wouldnít achieve anything at all, letís give up drawing.
But the years passed and hereís the evolution of her skills:
12 years first grade of an art school (http://www.imageup.ru/img142/2955400/img_20171221_214329.jpg.html)

this she recently did, sheís 19 now (http://www.imageup.ru/img142/2955408/img_20171221_213703.jpg.html)
As Iím just starting my art way itís very encouraging to me - practice makes many things possible.

Great story and thanks for sharing it. It really does show what practice and study can accomplish. She's very good I hope you stick it out as well. You'll get there too! Welcome to the forum.

"Stick it out" means to stay with it until you reach your goals.

Actually "stick with it" is probably the better phrase.
