You have to seek critiques - from teacher and from fellow students and from audiences...............
Many amateurs (and some professionals) are afraid to risk such revealing self-scrutiny. They fear that their confidence may be shattered. So they avoid insightful critiques. ("I never read the critics." NONSENSE -everyone does.) I am sure that you will seek constant (and revealing) critiques. You will see them as ways of improving your techniques. Some students refuse this constant process at first. The following may be tough to say ..... but it is worth saying. Such reactions against critiques are childishly ego-defensive. They must be worked through. That is, unless self-deception is preferred to professional development. Your continuous goal is: WHAT TECHNIQUES MUST I IMROVE? You ask: What are my three weakest techniques?
