It is awesome. I have spent hours looking at mountains. I have spent hours looking at Instagram photography pages that take interesting images. I stop and stare at little moss patches imagining them as tiny Terraformed landscapes. I'll look deeply at the texture of a tiny flower and right after I started doing maps I found myself fascinated by the ripples of wet sand at a beach. I figure it will be enough when I can draw or paint it without needing to look at the details, IF that ever happens.
Enjoy the journey. I guess its true that there will always be a million little things you do to a piece that none will every witness except you.
