Subject title: critique my painting study(ish)

alright so i did a study off of a norman rockwell painting, i really have no idea what im doing when painting but i tried to just wing it... i feel like im depending too much on the textured brush to get that loose quality. I just wanna know if theres a better way to approach learning digital painting rather than just going straight in with no sense of work flow. any tips on how to start a painting would seriously help

Do an applied study where you paint something without reference using what you learned from doing the study.

I draw stuff sometimes and it looks like this: (Latest work on page 8)
