Learning to Paint – Bad Day at the Office

A thoroughly underwhelming day with the paintbrush today. I had plans to spend most of the day painting and started out trying to paint a flower which had bloomed early alongside some of its neighbours, which have yet to follow suit. I put some background in and was going to put a blue wash over the picture before deciding it was so bad, adding more would be a waste of time. The flower in the middle is particularly unappealing.

I then had a little play with trying some leaf shapes around the edges then had one more go at the flower on its own on a separate piece of paper. Nothing seemed to go right today so I knocked painting on the head and cut the grass instead!
