Yesterday I was on the scheduled visit to my parents place and had half an hour to sketch lilies in the garden. Too much diligence always makes the sketch look overworked.
One more thing. I was completely and unconditionally happy yesterday. It lasted for about 45 minutes.
My recipe of happiness:
Time: when the sun is on the way down
Where: on the empty road, with wood along both sides of the road and clean blue sky above
Driving the car at 100-120km/hour speed
And listening to Nigel Kennedy playing Bach.
In the midsummer.
