My back is getting better, but still slowing me down and backs are notorious for taking their time.
I decided I’d do the doodle thing. A thumbnail drawing each day, no more than 2-5 minutes of drawing. I’m doing all on the same sheet of paper so at the end of the month, I’ll have a fun journal page. This will give me time to work on other projects as well, back permitting.

Doodlewash Prompt: Wheat
Did you know that wheat is used in particle board, paper, hair conditioners, adhesives, plastics, cups, golf tees, medical swabs, charcoal and more?
I don’t think it shows in the scan, but it ended up with almost an iridescent look around the wheat stalks, even though I didn’t use any metallics, iridescent, pearlescent or sparkly of any kind. I was surprised.

Doodlewash Prompt: Green Apples. I noticed the apples were plural after painting this, so I’m going with the notion that all the other apples finally sank.
Did you know that an apples float because they are 25% air?
I did have a reference photo that I looked at for this, but I made many changes including turning a red apple green. I really struggled with the water, and values, and there are many things I would do differently now that I see it finished. Overall though, I’m happy with it.
