Sometimes I paint better when I paint fast, and today may be an example. I spent an hour, tops, on this tiny little 5” x 7” sketch of some roses in my garden. Apologies for the bits of glare on the photo; I need to invest in a better photography setup. But I like the painting itself.
I had expected a dreary, overcast, muggy sort of day, but by mid-afternoon the sun was out and the heat and humidity wasn’t so bad. So I rushed outside to paint a rose bush in full bloom.
