Since I only had a half day to work on this today, I wasn’t able to achieve as much progress as I’d have liked. Mr. Weather isn’t cooperating either, with gloomy days like today the natural light is poor so I’m reliant on my Ottlite which I’m very thankful to have. I got a little cross-eyed working on the brilliant orange feathers so I opted to start on the Blue Macaw for a bit. I realize it’s important to take breaks, not just to get away from it but to relax your eyes and your arm and neck muscles. It’s amazing how tense you can get when you’re concentrating very hard on little areas and details for hours on end.
