Today's temperature is as warm as yesterday's, but it was overcast and a bit breezier than yesterday. So I painted today. I found some books in my collection about painting Victorian flowers. I couldn't trace them because I'm using a crackle finish and neither gray nor white transfer paper worked. So I sketched what I wanted. I tried to follow the directions but what I ended up with didn't look much like theirs. They looked all right, but not what I was aiming for.
The tomato was easier. Maybe I should try a cucumber next.
