I had a sense early on that this particular painting project was going to be more time intensive than others we've done.
The three hour workshop stretched to almost four as the ladies put the finishing touches on their backgrounds, each choosing something unique and interesting. I also had a sense that I wouldn't be able to finish my larger 18" x 36" canvas.
Even though I was exhausted at the end of a full day of painting, I went out after a quick dinner to spend another hour with my portrait. An additional hour or two last night and it was pretty much done.
