Indulged in an exotic orchid to brighten things up a bit. Painted in a long, narrow Handbook sketchbook. Thankfully, this forgiving paper allowed me to lift an attempt at a background colour. Needed to remind myself that negative (white) space is a good thing!
Had trouble getting started today at the “stitch (or sketch) and b___h” get together. My fellow sketcher’s advice was to “start small, draw the candles.” It was good advice. The candles were on a remarkable, intricate and unusual tablecloth.
