Day 217

I am really enjoying these sketchbook studies. I love experimenting with new styles and not overthinking the outcome. One thing I've told myself throughout this process is to just let the artwork flow. Don't over-analayze the details. It's not worth it. I love committing myself to one year to work with new mediums and themes. If I didn't force myself (and trust me, it's not force) to paint every day, it might have been easy to give up on any of these new collections. IΒ could have easily let any errors deter me from pursuing a new look. This whimsical style I'm creating for the Desert chapter is indeed a new look for me. I am loving the freshness of it, but I can tell I'm a little gun shy about my colors and elements. Again, I keep reminding myself that there's always tomorrow. Aloe Vera
