Just sat at the kitchen island and sketched my flowers. I experimented using different types of pencils in one drawing in order to achieve lights and darks.
I was also trying to work somewhat quickly because I don't want to spend hours and hours on each page of my sketchbook.
I painted with acrylics today. First I tried to define the hobnail texture on the vase from the other day's painting.
Still not entirely right. Which shouldn't matter, but it does bother me a little. I also painted a simple plaid-like, quilt-like pattern as today's painting.
And using the leftover paint from these two paintings, I added more layers to the circle painting (see other versions here, here and here).
Feeling a bit inept with the acrylics. And I don't really like painting with them on those small squares of paper/canvas. I don't want to give up altogether, but maybe I should just focus on the watercolors. My stubborn nature, though, is telling me to keep going with acrylics. I guess we'll see how things go.
