It was great to spend the weekend painting in an absolutely gorgeous studio space. I definitely learned new things about painting. It is a "wet on wet" technique. I didn't feel like I "finished" either painting. I spent forever on the portrait trying to get the skin tone colorful enough before moving on to actually put her face on, which meant I was left with about an hour to suddenly pull a full portrait out of my...hat. Both days I found myself working up to the very last moment, no choice but to call it "done".
