While my brain tries to figure out what to do with itself (and me!)... it's aaall the value studies.
I used to hate value studies. Now I find them very very calming. Like little curiosity puzzles. A whole conversation that starts with "What happens if.."
These specific thumbnails helped me realize that I am not confident painting with light colors. I know that feels a bit tangential, but all of my favorite studies have have the lightest lights be the flowers and I could feel myself panicking. So I followed the panic and realized that that's an area I could work on and really feel the benefits.
