I approached my painting a little bit differently today.
I usually start on plain white paper and sketch out what
I want to paint with pencil. Today I painted the paper
the soft teal color and with a general idea in my head
of what I wanted to do I just started painting. I put in the
vase, which has many layers. I was looking at a little herb
plant that had thyme, sage and oregano so some of the
leaves came from that. I just added the spiky ones and the
softer ones when I felt like it needed it. It was very
intuitive and I enjoyed it.
