Disciplining myself to take more breaks while I'm painting. Dang, it's soooo hard for me to do! I can *easily* get lost in my wonderland of luscious layers, never-ending color palettes + twirling brushstrokes. But, I can say this: it ain't fun when you're not enjoying the process. Am I right, sis? DOUBLE TAP if you agree.
So, what do I do when I start feeling that frustration bubbling up? The best thing for me to do is: STEP AWAAAY. 🦄Chill out, eat some Skittles, go for a walk. 🌈Get a fresh perspective on things.
