Four more letters towards my #44lettersmore project. I have 30 letters so far. I’m unsure if these are done , they might need something a little darker. Also my spectacles crashed to the floor and split in two. So I’m working with an older pair… This might explain a lot .
which I do three to four times a week now. The difference with today’s practice is that I rescheduled my yoga to immediately after I got up this morning.

#100 Day Result. Time lapse photo, As in a month has passed since its completion. Flouting the rules of marketing, always the rebel. But honest. It was coincidence that the warm and cool colours balanced 50/50. A happy accident I’d say.
