The study again was quick and fluid. It helps to have another painting to get to that is the REAL painting, so this one doesn't count so much. I am seeing some improvement in the bowl issue I think.
The second painting, the mug shot, was just --- well, really fun. They are wonderful exercises for painting the head and the sitter cannot complain. The photos are execrable, and there is so much you can't see, so if you can't see it, you can't paint it, you have to consolidate the information and simplify. I can see that there are lots of things you could tweak for your own amusement.
