Painted another one of my plants. Painting them has been a form of self care for me. I don't have any notes to address, I don't have to make them look realistic, I can paint them however I please. 

I really enjoy taking a break from digital work and using real paint. There are some things that are a little more rewarding when working with real paint. It's easier to get certain textures, and variations in color. There's no undo button and many times you have to work with whatever mistakes you have made. 

It's also nice being able to hold a painting in your hand. It doesn't live on a screen or requires to be printed to be enjoyed. 

If I could, I would paint more often. The days and weeks are filled with so many tasks though. It makes the time that I do get to paint feel very rewarding though.
