Sketchbook #112: Found Flower and Dealing with Mistakes

I try to separate the process of making form the process of critiquing my work but sometimes there is no way around it - something just looks wrong on so many levels even before I finished it. That was the case with these flowers - I was not patient enough to really draw the structure and colors were not right and values too... That is when I decided to make a new layer and make a line the main character of this page. And used pencil for it. Not only pencil over gouache brings me joy - which immediately helped my attitude, but actually, it helped me to slow down and adjust some previous decisions to make this a more interesting sketchbook page and richer memory.
