Day 15 - Peach Blossom
By yesterday afternoon I was feeling exhausted by the challenge and felt I really needed a day off from it. So after spending 3 hours working on yesterday's painting "Tea and Tinsel" where I'd inadvertently turned tinsel into a wildflower, I somehow managed to wrestle paint for just a tad longer to produce this quick little painting. Two paintings in a day meant I could take a day off, yay!
I felt quite pleased with this one actually, because for once I was able to resist adding too many details. I was simply too tired! Maybe I have finally unlocked the secret of how I can loosen up - paint when totally exhausted!
It was so great not to have to paint today, so imagine my surprise this morning when I actually felt compelled to paint something. I again made it super simple as I had a lot of other things earmarked for today. So I am still one ahead. I wondered initially if I should post today's painting today and just keep this one up my sleeve for when I don't paint, but I thought it would be better to keep them in order to see the progression.
I spent a couple of hours weeding in the garden today and now I am about to do some writing. I still haven't managed to make the writing a regular thing during the challenge but I did do some at least over this past week.
