Sunflowers in a glass jar
I've been wanting to try painting flowers, so when I went for my morning walk I picked a couple of wild sunflowers and brought them home. I totally wiped off my first attempt. I'm somewhat happier with this version.
Is it just me, or does everyone else have self-doubts about their paintings? I know I'm just learning, but I hesitate to post something I've done, because I don't think it's "good". I keep looking at what I think is wrong. Or sometimes I don't even know what's wrong! But I know it doesn't look right to me.
Hope this doesn't sound like I'm whining or begging for compliments. I'm not. I really would like to know if other people felt like this when they started.
