Sketchbook Project - Week 29

I noticed a theme this week: yellow.  I certainly don't mind the change.  Typically I'm pulled toward blues, greens, pinks (which you'll still find in these pages), but there's definitely more sunny yellow in general.  Plus, I let the week end in a bright yellow bang with a banana!

This week I pulled some inspiration from my phone camera roll (the indigo milk cap toadstool and the sunrise landscape), plus some from home (the houseplant leaf, toast and banana.)  Fun fact--I love toast.  I would eat it every meal if I wouldn't feel guilty about eating so much bread.  So one of my spreads this week is a lovely 'ode to toast' with some of my fave ways of enjoying it: strawberry slices and a touch of honey, topped with an egg, slices of avocado, and cinnamon & sugar. Yum!

By the end of the week, I really wanted to work with acrylics, so I found a seemingly easy but beautiful landscape in my phone photos.  It actually wasn't difficult, but I took longer than estimated to complete it, per usual.  I've found that when I work with acrylics, I tend to work on the piece until it's just right--no shortcuts and leaving anything looking unfinished.
