For drawing you need to become more focused I suggest if you have interest then do it otherwise not. The http://www.australian-writings.org/ share some videos if you watch then you understand how drawing works.

As narrated by the classical author Ovid, Atalanta agreed to marry the man who could beat her in a race. Using a ruse Hippomenes dropped three golden apples, received from the goddess Venus, shown in her chariot at top left. Atalanta could not resist picking them up and thus lost the race.

Although the story warns against greed for gold and sensual temptation, de Vos imbued his depiction with sensory appeal by adopting an expressive drawing technique that captures the wild race and entices the senses of the viewer. (Permanent collection label).
