Alhambra Garden WIP


I think I've finally found a rhythm that works for me with this piece. When I first started past the center box I found this piece so difficult because of all the color changes. Now though, I've figured out that if I do the yellow outlines of the columns and lattice work and then fill in, it goes more smoothly because the pattern is more obvious and I make fewer counting errors. This time I worked on from the top left corner across the top, and I enjoyed working on it very much.
Next up though, is Silkwood Manor - I like that piece because I always seem to make good progress on it when I work on it. I'll work on it for at least a few days - until I'm satisfied with how much I get done and am ready to move on in the rotation. I think I've finally sucumbed to a screaming rotation. I may go back to a more structured one at some point, but for now I'm just working on what I feel like for as long as I feel like. The only rule I have for right now is no new starts (at least until I finish something!)
