  1. Oh my! This reminds me of huge failure of mine when I tried to paint exactly this flower two weeks ago! ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was horrible! I was much too impatient to draw every little petal, thought I could cheat by using some effects and utterly and miserably failed. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Iโ€™ve just been listening to a TED talk by Ken Robinson about how we lose our creativity in an education system that stigmatises mistakes. Do you know his work? He argues very persuasively for experimenting and embracing the stuff that doesnโ€™t โ€œworkโ€ because thatโ€™s how we learn. I know heโ€™s not the only person saying this; I just found him really interesting to listen to. And I think we can both benefit from being kinder to our creative selves. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • It was shot in-situ. The light was fading and it put the surrounding foliage into shade. I add a vignette effect in editing to emphasise that, but otherwise, it was fairly natural. ๐Ÿ˜€
