The questions and the banter from passing pedestrians while I was in training I was used to—
the bugs slamming into my canvas from the wind gusts, my hat being blown into my palette, and a dog urinating on my hand truck, not so much...
1296 sq inches in 4.5 hours. BAM! If I can do this, then completing the 30x40 (1200 sq inches) canvas, is DEFINITELY doable. As a side note, I tried some new paint colors—I don't think they will work for the paint-off, but I definitely liked them for this painting! SO glad I tried them out.
8x10" in 1.5 hours. Not about speed, more about getting familiar with possible sites and terrain.
