My crazy daisy
I stopped at a florist the other day and grabbed a few different flowers with the intention of sketching them. I chose a few daisies, gerbera daisies, and sunflowers. Then they sat there for days. I loved looking at them, and all of the details, but I think I overwhelmed myself. When was I going to have time to deal with all these flowers and all those little details? Then one night I was like, "okay, get a grip. You don't have to draw every detail. Who said you even had to draw every flower? And really, why do you think you have to draw an exact replica? When in fact, if that's what you wanted, you should just take a picture. Use one as inspiration, and make it your own." Wow, self, what good advice!
