We had a really good model for the Life painting session today. She was wonderful but she did have to uncross her feet at one point (due to discomfort)... so I "abandoned" what was going on beneath her knees. I always like painting two if I can, a full body and a portrait. I was mostly satisfied with my efforts, but I had contact lens struggles again today. At the end of the session I put the paintings in the trunk of my car to transport them. Somehow some big droplets of water got onto the portrait...but no harm done..... water and oil "don't mix".
