#AutismAcceptance/#AutismAppreciation doodles ‘n’ scribbles, no. 21: I stopped for 20 minutes on the way to work and painted a cherry tree.

I deliberately lengthen my walk to work these days so I can take myself through a couple of parks and get a little bit of nature before I set foot in the office. And I’ve resolved to use painting and drawing as a method for mindfulness, given that I’m the kind of person who struggles to keep still long enough to do a seated meditation – to stop off and try and capture something in the moment, as well as giving me a good way of practising both technique and skills of observation.

I’m still messing about, really, when it comes to digital painting. I have a lot to learn!

At the moment I’m aware I use too many different media/brush styles in one picture. But it’s fun to play around with the tools.
