If you’re looking at good art or reading a good book, and the artist you’re engaging with makes it look easy, that’s because they’ve spent thousands of hours making it seem so.

Anything executed masterfully – from throwing a baseball to painting a cow – is executed with only the most essential elements. For the master, anything impeding upon near-flawlessness is treated like cancer: it must be eliminated.

Of course it looks easy. There’s nothing to it, after all.
