I tried the Tea Milk Honey technique I read about a while back. It is an elegant method which was mentioned in the book The Urban Sketcher. Despite of it being a promising technique, it is time consuming so I cut some corners here and there. Also, the brush I used was too thick and due to haste I did not pay attention enough to the shadows (the Honey part in TMH). I will definitely retry this technique.
But I am glad to be back on track for the daily prompts. It just shows that minor disruptions in a busy routine can turn into a backlog.
