As I was painting the roses, my hand started to hurt. Too many roses. It started to become mundane, but it was necessary to complete this drawing! lol I was going to use some reference for the roses, but then I realized that I really don't like to draw from references. Maybe that's also why I'm not really into still life drawing that much. Sometimes it's fun, but not when I'm doing a personal drawing. For work or study purpose is another thing. When I'm painting out of my imagination, if I use references for things it feels like it ruins the flow for me, and my drawings become kind of stiff. To have to look at the references and look back is really annoying. Maybe it's okay if everything is not perfect. Even if the roses doesn't look super amazing, or the anatomy is not dead on, as long as the mood of the drawing is there, I'm happy.
