A huge stumbling block

This page was a real pain for me.
Page 3: Pick an object in your house.  Looking only at the object, draw it without lifting the pen.

Of course, I had to choose a plant. And the above is the result. I struggled with painting this, struggled with colour, and then realized it doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't even have to be realistic!  I think I would have enjoyed this page a lot more if I had used a whole whack of colours and really livened it up.  So, although it was a difficult page to do, because I like things to be realistic, it was a great page for learning to let go. After all, isn't that what art is all about?
