Can you lose your drawing skills?
Drawing is a skill much like playing a musical instrument, therefore without regular practice will dull over time. It’s as much about motivation and confidence as much as inherent ability. It usually comes right back with some practice and focus. Even with practice, the art mojo can come and go.
Can you lose a talent?
Capability without practice does not lead to talent. Practice can overcome capability to a certain amount. You can unlearn (as in forgetting how to, losing your touch) by not practicing. But your capability will not be lost, because it’s a part of you.
Why can’t I draw what I see?
Four possible sources of drawing inaccuracies were described: misperception of the object, inability to make good representational decisions, deficient motor skills, and misperception of the drawing. In four studies the degree to which the latter three sources contributed to drawing inaccuracies was assessed.
