Don't be overly concerned with the results of your painting. After all, it is just paint on canvas. Move on to the next one and the mistakes you have made combined with what you have learned making those mistakes will serve to make your next work a little better. Laboring over a painting by trying push it to the point you know you would like to see it is often a futile excercise and can worsen your final results. We all have limits from which we cannot exceed. If you have a general idea where those limits are and not beat yourself up over not reaching them every time, your progress will be natural and steady.
