In each case I spent about an hour and a half making starts that I will put final finishes on and see if they warrant being called a " painting".
But my point came to me yesterday when one of the "audience" was talking about their fear of painting plein air in front of viewers. It dawned on us that maybe painting in a visible location from photos - where you have better control of your subject and weather etc - might be a step to building confidence in painting in front of others.
I choose photos that are simple to work. Each example is acrylic 12x16 on linen mounted on 1/8 " doorskin plywood.
Just something to consider.
