It's kind of ironic that I just mentioned how I feel like I've made so much progress in the past year, and then I have to post my Week 1 in-class study which turned out SO abysmal.
My teacher provided the reference, which was a close-up of some kind of plant foliage. We were supposed to practice our washes. I wish I'd used some glazing techniques and treated the image as a whole instead of a bunch of small shapes.
There is nothing about this to like, and I'm going to put it here and then walk away from it forever. No looking back!
