I feel like I'm not updating this blog as much as I should... the weight of my last ever semester is finally sinking in; the workload is just insane, although admittedly some bits are more fun than others (like tonight I have to deliberate on which Akira Kurosawa film I should watch for my Film Theory report next week).

I was only able to do this painting because I managed to finish a paper earlier than I expected; it was supposed to be a speed/ practice painting, but I couldn't resist adding more detail, so the planned two-hour session became a ten-hour episode (which is still faster than my usual). I wanted to practice drawing/ painting from imagination, so I didn't use any references for the flowers and foliage (yes, that's why they look strange). 

On another note, I've been working on giant acrylic pieces to build up on my portfolio, and to get started on my lifelong dream of having an exhibit of my works. It's difficult, however, only because I have to fight my naturally short attention span; I get distracted easily, so I don't usually finish artworks :( It helps that people like my boyfriend are continuously encouraging me to push forward (he gave me a huuge easel and a canvas for Christmas; he's so awesome!), but I hope I can achieve my dream soon.

I'll give a sneak peak of my acrylic paintings later on, but for now, toodles!
