Where does the talent come?

I see drawings from you and I'm surprised of the well done they are.
Do you think you draw well because you are talentous or because you have practiced a lot?
Is drawing for example like swimming? I mean the more you draw the best you do? Or if you don´t have the talent there is nothing to do?
Because swimming for example it's a question of practice.
Drawing: talent or just practice?
So well, your answers will be welcome!

I also don't consider myself talented. I guess I was just born with a desire to draw what I've seen. I think if anyone had the desire to sit down and spend time drawing what they see and how they see it, in time they'd develop the skill. I know I've watched my husband draw engine parts with perfect perspective, dimension and percision, (he's a mechanic) but then I've asked him to draw a cat and it's two circles and a squiggily line for a tail; he just doesn't have the desire to spend the time drawing cats.
On the flip side I've seen very young people draw and paint instantly very well as if born with the ability, without the years of practise behind them, those I believe to be truly talented.

I seem to be generally good at quite a lot of things, but not really "talented" at any one thing, where "talented" means possessing a natural skill that puts me at a distinct advantage over someone who doesn't have that in-born ability. I guess it's good though because I have to work hard to be above average at just about everything, and that's the way I like it. It feels good to earn things for yourself rather than falling back on "natural" talent.
