Remember in the original Karate Kid when Mr. Miyagi teaches the super-skinny heart throb, Danny Russo (I still don’t understand how he was the "it guy" but whatever) how to catch a fly with chopsticks?
“You beginner luck”
That is not how painting has ever been for me. I’m not some prodigy; I work my monkey butt off. I try and fail and try again. I study, sketch, and research.
I believe if you put your mind to something, you can do it. It may come easier for some than others but we can all be creative. Just don't be afraid to put yourself out there.
Maybe you will have beginner luck.
