So this pass really did happen in one sitting. I'm pretty happy with today's work -- on the vase, the background and the shadow. This is the first time with painting this that I have been pleased at all. Finally, a good feeling day.
We live at the north end of Seattle in Shoreline, Washington. Between the two of us, we've been struggling, striving, and sometimes even enjoying our efforts with oils, pastels, or acrylics for 80 years! We'd love to hear from you.
